  1. Ask MIchael, September 2, 2018 Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. KaterPotater: Are we developing a talent or skill while incarnate that helps to build or strengthen a talent or skill used when astral, perhaps one that cannot be done fully when incarnate due the limitations of the material world? MEntity: Though it is fairly well understood that skills and talents developed while Physical serve as resources while Physical, it is true that skills and talents developed while Physical also serve as resources when non-Physical, or between lives. This is true both in terms of the persistence of Personality and of Essence. The level of acuteness and the variations of nuance that are gained when Physical in such a unique Space/Time context serves to refine skills and talent that then serve quite nicely while Astral. What happens is a circuit that weaves between the Physical and the Astral and creates themes of development and evolution for the fragment. The talents and skills you are developing that serve the Astral can often be seen relative to your impulses in life. The quiet and gentle voice that suggests directions and actions and interests and hobbies, etc. can often reveal that which will also benefit you and others between lives. We can elaborate upon this concept in further exchanges. ConnorB: Hello again Michael! Last December, you were sharing fascinating material about non-incarnating Personalities, or Unborn Personalities, and at the end of our discussion, you said, “These Personalities count in terms of lifetimes for Essence. We do not count them for our students because those lives extant are woven together differently than those that are non-extant. We can elaborate upon this in further exchanges.” Can you elaborate on this a little bit more? How are they woven together differently? MEntity: As we have said in our previous exchanges, once something exists, it cannot un-exist. This includes any Personalities that are generated in the Astral as experiments or as the result of various other necessities such as acting as a guide. These Personalities act as supplemental "lifetimes" to those that experience the Physical Plane. Those Personalities that are born of biology are uniquely different because of the immersion in that Plane. Imagine the difference between watching a documentary and being the subject of a documentary, or watching a movie vs BEING the movie. It is profoundly different in intensity and depth. However much a non-Physical Personality might evolve and grow and emphasize with being Physical, it will never know the threat of danger, pain, suffering, fear, guilt, anguish, worry, claustrophobia, etc. that sets the Physical Plane apart from every other Plane. However much these qualities are avoided at all cost while Physical, the mere existence of these dangers while in a fragile body that lives only once is a terribly unique and horrible and wonderful experience that no non-physical Personality will know except by proxy. That unique thread of survival and endurance while in a body that will bond with loved ones and live only once is something that ties each incarnation to each in a thread that is very different from other dimensions of existence. Again, we can elaborate upon this with further questions, but this is the basic difference. ConnorB: Thank you! Aksoren: I wanted to ask what are common characteristics of the members of Cadre 6, entity 5 MEntity: Cadre 6, Entity 5 could be said to be "THE UNTAMABLE." There is a theme here of being unexpected, contradictory, challenging, and even incorrigible. Cadre 6 is all about helping others to learn how to care for those who need guidance and kindness and care, while Entity 5 is about pushing the boundaries and capacity of those who seek to care and give direction. They are themed in being "untamable," but none of this is "bad," it is simply a way to experience the fine balance between responsibility and play. EricM: In past channeling, you've mentioned that Scholar essences tend to act as “hubs,” “routers,” or “drop-boxes” for their entities, in that they function to gather and/or upload the experiences of their entity mates into the collective record. Can you elaborate on this? EricM: For example, does this function have any effect on a Scholar essence's Personalities, or is it a totally separate function of essence? Also, are there comparable functions that other roles perform? EricM: update: i see the other roles functions have been covered in another session. We can focus more on how the Scholar function works and/or how an essence function affects their personalities MEntity: Yes, each Role will have certain functions for their Entity, and each individual/Personality will also have a function for that lifetime. Most of these functions that serve the Entity are processes that Essence manages and do not touch or affect the Personality, but the more conscious the Personality, the more aware the individual may be that this function and processing is occurring. For older Scholars, this often shows up as an exhausting effort to remain neutral on all counts and in all experiences. Though the state of neutrality is natural for the Scholar as Essence, the Personality does not have an easy time of being neutral. The older Scholar who is aware to some degree of this function and process of collecting and sorting data then will tend to experience conflicting positions in the life where he or she knows she should or could speak up, take a stand, offer an opinion, make a choice, etc., but feel quite painfully conflicted about having any right to interject. This is a result of having to process a great deal of data that would often conflict with one's own ethics, morals, preferences, etc. so when there is any degree of consciousness involved in the function as Scholar for the entity, these ethics, morals, preferences, etc., are assumed they must be neutral or the data could get skewed. As for the functions of a Personality for the Entity within any given lifetime, this is different from that of the Essence as Role. The functions of the Personality as they serve the Entity tend to show up in terms of Life Tasks. Juni: A previous question asked you to rate the total comprehensive human knowledge of the universe on a scale from 1 to 100. Your answer was 2. Using this same form of measurement, where are we on understanding the human body? Please comment on where the biggest lacks are, if time allows. MEntity: The comprehension of the human body stands at around 4. The greatest lack comes from the gap between Homeopathic and Allopathic and Holistic and Subtle Energy concepts that remain either in conflict or have extremes in misunderstanding themselves. All of these contexts for understanding the human body are valid and have strengths and weaknesses, but rarely are they seamlessly combined as a way to understand the body. Beyond these basic areas of understanding, there are the multidimensional realms that remain barely explored. This includes the various bodies that exist as stacked "within" and around every individual, such as the etheric, and emotional and intellectual bodies and the combinations of these that created the "mind." The next major breakthrough for understanding the Human Body looks to involve cellular regeneration and/or the tangible and quantifiable element of consciousness that animates the body. By "cellular regeneration" we mean that unlocking of the capacity to regrow organs, limbs, etc. MikeClev: Hi! There isn't a lot of info out there about the topic of Tri Bonds (three people who are in the same position on each of the 3 "sides" of an Entity). Could you please give some examples of famous or historic people we might know who were Tri Bonds, and how that relationship played into it? MEntity: One example of a famous Triad would be the literal triad of "stooges" known as The Three Stooges, made up of Larry Fine, Curly Howard, and Moe Howard. Their relationship was a constant dance of Positive, Negative, Neutral in their "real life," though the fictional characters tended to stick to one of the positions. Another example would be Steven Jobs, Bill Gates, and Steve Wozniak. Again, the dance of Positive, Negative, and Neutral are seen here. As well as that of Truth, Love, or Energy/Beauty. MikeClev: I thought Jobs and Gates were different entities? MEntity: There is a discrepancy in our delivery. We will remedy this in further exchanges as our channel is losing focus. We suggest marking the final delivery here as pending validation.
  2. July 1, 2004 Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Speaks Online – Open Floor [Note: Here is the transcript from Thursday’s Chat! It was great! I have asked Michael for some clarification on some of it, so there is editing involved. Enjoy! Troy] [M Entity] Hello to everyone. We are here with you. Tonight we will open the floor to any questions or topics of interest to each of you as best we can. Troy has restrictions against personal questions, but if you have a way to present a question that is beneficial for all, we will attempt to respond accordingly. [kittlekats41] This is based on a personal experience, but I am interested in an answer that everyone can relate to: when we moved down to Atlanta we stopped overnight at a hotel. Upon arrival here [to Atlanta] the energy felt off-centered and discordant, which it hadn’t been before. One of the cats was especially vocal and restless. We determined that we had picked up a ‘stray’ energy that attached itself to us at the hotel with a number of others; we were able to clean the space and remove the energy into a better environment for it – an old tree that is grounded. The question is: a) how common is it for this type of experience to occur? b) how can we deal with it when it does? and c) are animals a common barometer to identify when it happens? That is my question:-) [M Entity] We would first respond that we would not describe any energy as “stray” that might attach itself to you randomly. We have rarely seen a case of energetic resonance that was not in some way “invited” or allowed. However, what you refer to as “hotels” and “motels” are full of what might accurately be described as “echo energies”. In other words, the emotional and intellectual imprints from the many fragments passing through a small space (which is assumed by fragments to be a sanctuary in many ways) can become literally “coated” with these “echoes” of energy. In the same way that there are “ghosts” of the dead, there are “ghosts” of the living, as well. “Ghosts” are merely echoes of energy, whether from the living or the dead. With all of that being said, your being affected by an echo is based on a particular resonance you must have had with that “echo”. It appears to us that you were in a space of deeper concern, worry, anticipation, and possibly anxiety, than you were in the previous trip. [kittlekats41] true [M Entity] This would naturally align you with any other fragment's concerns, worries, anticipations, anxiety that had left an imprint in that hotel room or location. This alignment then would naturally amplify your own energy, yet again, and because it then becomes disproportional to your original concerns, etc., it can feel strangely disconcerting and distracting. [kittlekats41] would that echo remain as a presence for a number of weeks afterwards and be detected by the animals? [M Entity] We will respond to your questions as quickly and as orderly as possible. The way you can “deal with this” is to consciously “clear the space” in any environment that has acted as a sanctuary for so many other fragments. Doing so upon settling into your room can greatly increase your experience of peace and temporary ownership of that space. A simple visualization of a colorful light of your choice sweeping through the room and clearing it of all darker or heavier energies is enough. It is not necessary to create an elaborate ritual; just a simple, conscious shifting of the room’s energy to accommodate you is enough. We would suggest avoiding rituals focusing on “protection”, as this simply amplifies a contrast between you and your space and does not effect a peaceful, restful shift. Animals are more sensitive to these echoes than most humans, but they are even more sensitive to the effects of the echoes on their human companions. In other words, your animal companion was responding to your own agitations than to the separate “stray energy” you theorized. The “echo” remains only in the space in which is imprinted, but the effects of that echo upon you can last for weeks. It was Good Work that you created time to transform that effect upon you and to ground yourself again. [BradburySE] I just have a question about the number of inputs for the various roles. It seems to be well known that Artisans have five inputs and Sages three, but how about the other roles? I've never seen this written anywhere. [M Entity] The “solid roles” of King, Warrior, and Scholar have a single input, while the inspirational roles of Priest and Server have 2 inputs. [H2OSprtlvr] We were talking about the 9/11 movie by Michael Moore and it was mentioned that he is a Sage and he had a reincarnation from Josiah Royce. This seems confusing to me that he is a Sage, because all the studying and fact finding is so Scholar. I was wondering where the Scholar might be in his personality, since Sages only want to have fun and are not into fact finding or writing books. [M Entity] First we will say that we have never said, nor have we implied, that Sages “only want to have fun” and that they are not “into fact finding or writing books”. This conclusion is highly simplified and inaccurate of the Sage and of the Scholar. The very Essence of a Sage is to find the Truth and then to disseminate what they have come to believe is true. In that search for the Truth, they will use any means possible. The stereotype of the Sage comes from the fact that in most cases a Sage's method of “fact-finding” and “writing books” simply ends up looking like so much more “fun”. By contrast, the Scholars have been responsible for some of the most influential and “beautiful” music on your planet. This could look contrary to the stereotype of the Scholar, but in fact the Scholar finds the connection between music and math to be one of the most beautiful aspects of life on earth and if that can be translated into music, they will try. We explain this to you to help contribute to your broadening understanding of the Roles of Sage and Scholar. This is not to say that the fragment now known as Michael Moore does not have Scholar influences, because, in fact, he actually does. This Sage is Scholar-Cast, with a Server Essence Twin. [H2OSprtvr] I realize I was stereotyping and I'm grateful for further clarification on the roles. [M Entity] Comparing the lives of Beethoven and Royce/Moore can give you great insight into the differences between how a Sage-Cast Scholar (Beethoven) vs. a Scholar-Cast Sage (Michael Moore) may act within a lifetime. In most cases, a Sage-Cast individual will behave more like the “stereotypical” Sage than a Sage with different Casting. Furthermore, in most instances when a fragment is behaving like one of the Essence “stereotypes”, it is usually an indicator of that person's Casting than of their Role. [BingeBuddie] I know this may seem like a very basic question, but I have had a hard time validating my role in essence. With so many factors to consider such as casting, ET influence, overleaves, and entity position, etc. is there any definitive way to determine your role? I’ve went with channels in the past, but that causes confusion because its difficult to tell what one input is as opposed to many inputs, such as Scholar having one and Artisan having 5. One channel Roles (Scholar, King, and Warrior) can concentrate in the midst of chaos right? So that's kind of what I try to look at. Is that a good indicator? [M Entity] No, we would not suggest using your ability to concentrate as your determining factor. The symptom of concentration vs. distraction in terms of Input is another of the simplifications that can happen when first learning about a part of the teaching. While it is true that an Essence with a single input can usually focus more intently in the midst of chaos, the influence of Personality, Imprinting, and Situations can greatly affect that level of concentration. What we would suggest as part of your validation of your Role in Essence is this: First, study the Roles. It is important to truly comprehend each Role. This means moving beyond the stereotypes that are a part of the initial stage of learning. Next, it is important to understand the vital differences between Essence and Casting. Casting affects how you behave “naturally”, how you express yourself to the world on a DAILY BASIS. Your Essence Role is most obviously comprehended in moments where you feel you SHINE. For instance: A Scholar-Cast Sage: In the daily life of this individual he may appear unkempt, distracted, refined, studious, directed, serious, and maybe even a bit out of synch socially, but this fragment would “shine” as soon as he was able to publicly share what he has gained as experiences in a way that was entertaining to at least a small group. A Sage-Cast Scholar, on the other hand, may be dramatic, socially obnoxious, emotional, depressed, extreme, performing, and chaotic in his daily life, but this fragment would “shine” when he is able to wholly comprehend something that can be finalized as a bit of profound personal knowledge. We do not know of a more appropriate word than “shine”. When you are in Essence, you feel complete, “on”, and you usually feel cohesion between your mundane self and your higher self. When we say “shine”, we do not intend to mean that everyone will see this, but rather that the Personality and Essence open to each other and a sense of lightness and wholeness pervade. We explain all of this to you in the context of an Essence having a different Role than Casting, but of course, there ARE Sage-Cast Sages and Scholar-Cast Scholars, but those fragments usually have little confusion as to their Role. Having explained those basic differences between Casting and Role in Essence, you can then figure out your Role or Casting by first determining if you feel you are more exalted or more ordinal in either of those contexts. In other words, in your DAILY LIFE, are you more one-on-one, but when you “shine”, are you surrounded by people? One-on-One might indicate a more Ordinal position, while being inclined toward groups can be an indication of an Exalted position. Once you have determined how you may behave in either context, you can then determine if you feel you are more compelled to have an inspiring, expressive, or active effect on your environment. This will then give you an indication as to the final role description you might be in your Casting or your Essence. For example, you may notice you are naturally more one-on-one in your daily life, thus indicating that you may be Ordinal-Cast, but when you “shine”, you notice you love to be in a group of people in some way, indicating you may be an Exalted Essence Role. Then you would determine if you are more inclined to be expressive, inspiring, or active in your daily life. If you find you are more concerned with inspiring, you could then safely start trying out the idea that you may be SERVER-CAST. When you “shine”, you may find you are more inclined to be expressive, entertaining, and teaching-oriented, which may indicate a SAGE ESSENCE. This would then be a Server-Cast Sage. We realize this can still be very confusing and difficult to determine, but it is a start. Because the Scholar Role is neutral, it can be the most difficult to determine and we would not be able to convey in this format the depth of questioning that would need to be explored for true validation of the Essence or Casting. One of the most important things you can do while studying our teaching and seeking to validate your Role, Casting, Overleaves, Entity, and Essence Twins, etc. is be open to an evolution of your understanding. You may discover that what you believed was inaccurate channeling is actually profoundly accurate to who you realize you are becoming (as you come into your own identity). Or you may discover that your self-determined Overleaves were highly inaccurate in your initial understanding and you now see that you are someone completely different after all. Never feel as if you must conclude who you are. Our system is designed to help you understand who you are, not complicate your self-perception. If you are thoroughly confused, pick a Role, pick your Overleaves, and begin “living with them”. You will begin to see what does and does not hold validity. [BingeBuddie] But would you have to be past the 4th internal monad to judge completely accurately as to what role you are? (not to ask ANOTHER lengthy question) [M Entity] It does help to have completed the 4th Internal Monad in the Positive Pole for true self-awareness in terms of Essence, Casting, and True Personality. But then, that is the very crux of having a completion of the 4th Internal Monad in the Positive Pole, so it is not a matter of waiting for that rite to pass before seeking valid self-awareness. We are working with Troy in creating two new ways of determining your own basic profiles: a self-test, and a step-by-step process of elimination method. We believe this will help many of our students. We never sought to have any student dependent on our channels, so this is an important evolution to our sharing of the teachings. We believe we have given you at least some “food for thought” until then. [freyaisissuz] That's great, Troy, I will keep it short. I have sensed a connection with J Royce/M Moore. Is he a “reality shifter” or “dream maker” as in cadre 1/entity 3; if another, where? [M Entity] That is a valid observation. This is a fragment some of our channels would call a “wild card” within Cadre One, Entity Three, as well. This fragment is one of the youngest soul ages in that Entity. (3rd Level Mature) If there are no more questions, we will conclude for the evening. If there are more questions, we will take one more. [BradburySE]: A quick one [M Entity] Yes, Shannon, we will conclude with your question. [BradburySE] Who is this other “Dogma Dismantler” besides Michael Moore of whom you spoke in Troy’s energy report? Where will we find him, and is he or she now incarnated? [M Entity] Yes, he is incarnated: a Server Essence Twin of the Sage known as Michael Moore. The Server is a reincarnation of William James now focusing on the funneling of necessary requirements as a means to convey the Sage's “truth”. He may only be peripherally identified in the media. We believe he is one of the “producers” of Michael Moore's films, as well as several of his own projects which reflect some of the profound psychology explored in his previous life as William James. [BradburySE] Thank you, we can figure it out from here most likely! [M Entity] This relationship would appear to be more like a Task Companion relationship, but that is not the case. The relationship is taut with disagreements and power struggles, regardless of the powerful results. Good night to all of you. We will conclude here.
  3. April 18, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Inputs Part One Note from Janet: Although the transcript heading indicates this session is 'Part One', no additional session was found. [Note: I'm not too happy with how superficially we touched on Inputs in the chat, but we can only get so involved in such a short period of time. I hope we can continue this topic again. tt] [M_Entity] Welcome. We are here. We understand the requested Topic to be that of “Inputs.” Very little has been said in terms of Inputs because the topic is a bit more nonlinear in appearance than most of the aspects of our Teaching. It “makes no sense” to some of our channels and students; therefore the topic is dismissed or vaguely understood. In nearly all aspects of our Teaching there is an order and consistency that can be counted on, but some aspects of the universe, while still sustaining an awesome order, may not “fit in” with the patterns of every other thing you have come to understand. We assure you though; there is still an awesome order and compassionate intelligence behind even the most bewildering parts of the universe, known and unknown. First, we will define “INPUT” as a channel or frequency through which an Essence becomes aware, processes, and comprehends. 3 of the Roles in Essence have ONE INPUT; these are the Scholar, Warrior, and King Essences. 2 of the Roles in Essence have TWO INPUTS; these are the Priest and Server. 1 of the Roles in Essence has THREE INPUTS; this is the Sage. 1 of the Roles in Essence has FIVE INPUTS; this is the Artisan. The strange distribution of Inputs has to do with the Roles themselves acting as “sensory units,” so to speak, for Tao. Because the Physical Plane is of the most unique and densest of all Planes, three Roles in Essence are distributed with ONE INPUT so as to gain awareness, Process, and Comprehend FROM BEGINNING TO END in a linear fashion inherent to the Physical Plane. By default, Warriors and Kings are ACTION AXIS Roles and therefore inherently have ONE INPUT, as that is “natural” to Action. Being the most comfortable and compatible with the Physical Plane, Tao (or “the universe”) is able to gain profound experiences through the linear process of gaining awareness and comprehension. The Scholars (who are the memory cells of Tao in many ways) have ONE INPUT so as to maintain a direct link to the Akashic Records/Plane. Because Scholars are specifically designed as ambient, experiential “sponges”, this ONE INPUT allows them to act as excellent, direct, recording devices and conduits between the Physical Plane and the Akashic Plane. Although all fragments update their own records (usually having to be done between lives or through conscious awareness), Scholars do so for themselves, their Entity, and/or Cadre. Because Scholars, Warriors, and Kings are by nature inclined to focus on very specific themes for study, conquest, or mastery (respectively), having One Input allows them to excel in the Task at Hand (by standards of Essence.) With this understanding, it would not be amiss to say that ALL FRAGMENTS have at least One Input focused on NOW, or in other words, capable of being focused on the present, the task at hand, the moment, etc. The Inspiration Roles of Priest and Server have an additional Input as a means to maintain a connection to what INSPIRES them. In general, the Two Inputs for the Priest will have one focused on the Task At Hand, while the other maintains the Vision, or Higher Ideal. For the Server, one Input is focused on the Task At Hand, while the other is focused on the Common Good, or WHAT IS NEEDED. Inspirational Roles were the Tao’s idea of providing the universe with a means to provide for ALL FRAGMENTS an access to something “beyond the moment.” It could be said that the Priest then provides access to “what is beyond the Self”, while the Server provides access to “what is within the Self.” In general, the Expression Roles are the means for the Tao to continue reinventing or transforming itself throughout the Planes. As Kings and Warriors we can attest to the importance of the “pesky Sage” and the “kooky Artisans” as the single- or double-input Roles can tend to take to life a bit more “seriously”. Artisans and Sages can certainly be serious, which tends to be interpreted as “dramatic”, but they do bring a much-needed levity to the density of the Physical Plane. The Sage, in addition to the one Input focused on the Task At Hand, will have a second Input to sustain connection to whatever that fragment deems is “the Truth,” while a third Input is focused on the expression of that Truth. This can be translated rather simply as a Sage having an Input for gauging his Audience (task at hand), his Truth, and how to express that to the Audience. The Artisan, having the most Inputs, is the Tao’s means to constantly keep the universe “fresh,” revitalized, and “alive.” They are the guarantee in the Universe that ideas of the Tao can continue to come into existence. All Roles are expressions of Tao, of course, but Artisans are more a direct conduit for Tao than can sometimes be comprehended by the mundane levels of life. The Single-Input Roles are focused on directly experiencing the Planes, the Dual-Input Roles are focused on expanding beyond them, the Triple-Input Role is focused on keeping the truth entertaining, and the Quintet-Input Role is focused on creating new contexts for it all. The Artisan then has one Input on the Task At Hand, another on generating creativity, another on maintaining or generating the manifestation of a previous creation, another on maintaining or generating the medium of that manifestation, and a final Input that is literally tuned to All That Has Come To Be. Artisans are CHANGE manifested; therefore they are tuned to those five dimensions of Creativity. This is simply a basic introduction to the Inputs and why they are distributed in this manner among the Roles, but there is a great deal more information available about these aspects of Essence. We will take your questions now. [val2] If a sage has three inputs what happens when they have an Artisan for essence twins and task companions; are they adding to their inputs? [M_Entity] Though “bleedthrough” can tend to lend seemingly extra dimensional awareness to the default Inputs of a Role, they are NOT “added” to the Inputs. Because of the intimate nature between Essence Twins and between Task Companions, there is a level of communication and assessment that does allow a potential, alternative angle of Input, but this is no different from asking for a friend’s opinion, so to speak. The use of the “opinion” may or may not influence the ability for you to use of your own Inputs appropriately, but they do not literally get added in. [Suzanne] Michael, how does frequency tie into the one input for warrior? I have a rather high 65 for a warrior, being sage cast, and can multitask well. [M_Entity] In the younger soul ages the Inputs can tend to manifest in ways affected by the general design of the soul, but as the soul gains experience, so does it gain the ability to utilize the Input more appropriately. As the Essence evolves, so does its ability to seek out the experiences through which balance can be attained and maintained. This eventual balance applies to all extremes of design, from the highly-Focused or highly-Creative Energy Ratio to high or low Frequencies. To respond directly to your example, a simple interpretation of a Higher Frequency matched with One Input could be that the movement toward Awareness, through a Process, and to Comprehension (the triad of each Input), is “faster” than a Lower Frequency with One Input. “Multitasking” is not an indicator of the number of Inputs; it is a sign of adaptability within your current culture. A One-Input Role and a Five-Input Role can equally “multitask”, but the method and internal experience for each may be quite different. [ClaireN] Could you please explain how the last 4 Artisan inputs are experienced in a life? [M_Entity] This will be highly simplistic, but we think we may be able to describe a familiar scenario: For an Artisan, other than the Moment, or Task At Hand, there will always seem to be a need for something NEW, a search inside or out for the Muse or Inspiration. This could be said to be Channel 2. This could manifest as simply as an idea or as profoundly as a deep, spiritual inspirational move to creativity. In general then Channel 2 would be the channel that Searches, Desires, Knows, and NEEDS to create change. Channel 3 then will be focused on trying to “finish” that which has being created previously, ranging from a new job, new move, to a new art project. Channel 3 monitors your “children,” so to speak. Channel 4 then is focused on the HOW of a project or path of change. This can range from choosing your colors and clay for an art project, to designing or finding the path that is capable of actually being the conduit or medium for the creation or change. Channel 4 can be said to be your “mapping system.” Channel 5 is the broadest Channel, or Input, as it is simultaneously aware of all that has come to pass and all the probabilities of the future, and the entire dance that is possible among them. This can show up in an Artisan’s life as the part of them that is painfully aware of the past and its supposed mistakes, while desperately aware of an idealized utopia of a distant future of their making. However it shows up, it can be said to be the Channel that is constantly COMPARING. As we said, this is highly simplistic, but a bit more for you to consider as we share this information over time. [Kathryn41] How does casting influence input? Does a multi-input casting position add dimensionality to a single input role, and a single input casting position adds focus for a multi-input role? [M_Entity] Your Role in Essence is how Tao experiences the Lower Planes “through you,” while the Casting (being more permanent and pervasive) could be said to be how Tao experiences “through you” while transiting the Higher Planes. While Physical, your Casting (in terms of Input) is the most directly available “alternative” means of Input, but it is ONLY THAT, an alternative. Casting is a POSITION relative to a group, while your Role in Essence IS YOU. Casting as an alternative Input is accessed in that way VERY RARELY and usually when access to multidimensional awareness is sought. Some Channels, Healers, and legitimate Psychics tend to access Casting Input influences, if necessary. For most, it is your Role in Essence that defines your Inputs. [JNelson] It would seem every Fragment is capable of experiencing the world like the way an Artisan does through each Input. How does it manifest uniquely in an Artisan compared to everyone else? [M_Entity] We remind you that what we describe is the ESSENCE'S experience, not necessarily the Personality's. This is where some confusion comes in. The Personality of every single Fragment, regardless of its Essence, has the ability to design Overleaves that are more or less focused, inspirational, creative, or entertaining. Examining your Overleaves in relation to the Axis can reveal the way your Personality filters the world FOR Essence. This expands on the possibilities of all Fragments then. That is why a Warrior can be absolutely creative, and an Artisan can “kick ass.” This is not to say the design of Overleaves has an effect on how Essence INPUTS, but rather, it does help explain why varying Fragments feel they EXPERIENCE or BEHAVE in ways different than our Input descriptions define. The way the Five Inputs manifest MOST uniquely could be in the final examination of how an Artisan processes a life. Artisans do not process experiences directly or with focus, but rather have varying levels of commitment to varying themes in their lives. A Warrior may find a theme and find himself compelled to stick through it until everything that can possibly be “milked” from it is. An Artisan, on the other hand, may find she has many patterns in her life, all repeating and being highlighted and revisited in varying stages of her life. The most defining aspect of the Artisan, in terms of inputs, could be said to be in their deeply restless search for “something.” Although this trait can be attributed to any fragment, we are speaking in far more profound ways than a simple distraction for a Personality. The Artisan has a “knowing” that there is so much more than what is seen and yet is it is not touchable until she creates it. This “knowing” vs “creating” can either fuse the Personality and Essence into a powerful force of creativity, or the Personality begins to splinter and reject the Essence. Delusion and retreat then become more and more the emphasis of Channel Four [Anne751] The queues are finished for the night. [M_Entity] Then we are finished. Good Night. *** Note from Janet, 9/8/17: I found the following additional info that apparently was appended to the original transcript via comments. CHANNELED RESPONSES FROM MICHAEL [following chat] Question: Quote from Michael: "First, we will define "INPUT" as a channel or frequency through which an Essence becomes aware, processes, and comprehends." This is one of the largest problems I have understanding Inputs. How are they different from Centers? I'm used to thinking of Centers and their Parts are the "input" and "output" of a person. Here, Inputs seem to take the place of Centers. MICHAEL: CENTERS are a specific dimension of experience and/or expression, and while they are contexts with which the process of life occurs, they are not the actual processing, itself. As Centers do have an "input" and an "output" (which could be alternatively described as "Experience"/"Expression" of the Center), they are contexts shared by shared by most living beings and they are not unique to Sentience. ALL living things have an Instinctive Center, for instance, while Bees and other community Insects or schools of Fish are primarily, purely Moving Centered; Higher Mammals, especially those who live interactively with Humans are primarily, purely Emotionally Centered (even the Feline), while Higher Primates, such as Chimpanzees begin to become capable of being Intellectually Centered. However, without an individualized Consciousness that is Sentient, there will be no Inputs to differentiate how each Being would create and process a life. Centers are functions and tools of the Bodies of the Physical Plane. "Outside" of the Physical Plane, they are seen more accurately as the varying contexts of interaction with Tao. Inputs, however, are part of the unique design of Sentience and the varying Essence Roles. The number of Inputs you have simply describes how you would use ANY of the tools available to you, whether this be your Attitude or your Centering. It would lend you greater understanding if you were to differentiate between the fact of Essence's manner of processing vs the tools available as a means to support that processing. Inputs, whether having One, Two, Three, or Five, is simply the number of themes ESSENCE is capable of: Stage 1. Gaining Awareness within Stage 2. Processes that Awareness Stage 3. Comprehends what has been Processed Applying that Triad to each Input, and that Input's main focus, can help you understand how your Essence processes the life. In general, Kings, Warriors, and Scholars, can "only" process one theme at a time, whether the Personality is submerged in several experiential themes or not. If needed, the focus of the Input can change for some lengths of time, but these Roles will not find the comfort and adaptability to be submerged in several themes at once. We are not speaking of their being capable of watching TV while sewing. We are speaking of actual life themes as they apply to Essence's digestion of them. Scholars, Warriors, and Kings move steadily and enduringly through their experiences until comprehension is attained. We say "comprehension" as it applies to ESSENCE, not necessarily Personality. Until the Older Soul Ages, Personality is not so concerned with comprehension simultaneously to Essence's comprehension. Question: I'm curious about the Michael Math behind the number of Inputs given to specific Roles. I suspect there is more to be told. MICHAEL: Though meaning could be found in the numerical values and distribution, it would an arbitrary assignment of meaning and symbolism. Inputs are similar to the function of varying digestive systems; some have one stomach, some have four, etc. The meaning behind the number of Inputs has more to do with the particular "species" of Essence and its inclination toward certain experiential "diets" than anything else. Question: This is a generic Michael question beyond just Inputs, but I'm wondering how Scholars keep "records" differently from other Roles. MICHAEL: Scholars not only manage their own Records, but as each Essence updates its own records within the Entity and Cadre, the Scholars update the Akashic Records. In other words, each Essence has its own "personal library", but the Scholar extends on that to make that information "universal". Keeping that information as up-to-date, so to speak, as possible allows many versions of consciousness and sentience to draw from it. This is the stuff of new universes. Scholars have One Input as having One Input increases the durability to indulge in specific experiences, rather than touching briefly on a theme, and then moving to new ones, then returning later with new awareness. Scholars complete their themes so as to have a "purer" experience. Question: Quoting Michael: "Channel 4, then is focused on the HOW of a project or path of change. This can range from choosing your colors and clay for an art project, to designing or finding the path that is capable of being the conduit or medium for the creation or change." Again, can't everyone focus on choosing colors and clay for an art project? Does this mean that the Artisan Essence is constantly focused on such selections? MICHAEL: A Warrior may choose its material for a creative project, but that will be within the confines of its One Input, or one theme. In other words, that creative project ALTOGETHER will have a Stage 2, which may BE the choosing of materials. For an Artisan, though, the choosing of a medium will have its OWN Stage 2.
  4. August 17, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We understand we will start with your Energy Report. This will cover the weeks from the 19th through the 1st. First we will comment that the past weekend was a rather powerful energy flux for many of you, particularly on Sunday. If you did not notice anything, this is nothing to be concerned about. Many of you, though, experienced something similar to an “energy wash.” For those participating in that “wave,” this could have been a slow accumulation or you may have been “hit” rather hard. This “wash” was not uncommon. It is a processing of parallel shifts to date. After many Parallel shifts, sometimes there tends to be what might be considered residual plans, ideas, hopes, etc., that have long begun to be fulfilled in other parallels. When an assessment occurs, which it did over the past week within the first three Cadres of your Energy Ring, a “fresh” alignment occurs similar to a “domino affect”; an alignment among Entity and Cadre Members. There are many ways to look at it, but it is a purging. This is sometimes laced with depression and grief for the first day, even preoccupation with your mortality. Then the stronger, more focused motivation, inspiration, and feelings set in. This then sets up what the next couple of weeks are about. Though some of you may not have experienced what we just described, most of you still are processing your Intellect and Attitudes toward your current life. That is what this “season” is about in general. For the next two weeks, the 19th through the 1st, this appears to be energy moving through Sentience that will allow a respite from your personal Chief Features. Every year there is an opportunity at some point, a window, that allows the Personality to have a “break,” an ability to experience perception without Chief Feature. The next two weeks appear to be that window. This does not mean you are not going to experience your fears or Chief Features, simply that you are in a time frame that will allow you experience the enhanced potential of alleviation from Chief Feature, if you consciously choose that. In fact, you may be highly exposed to your Chief Features, but the energy available will allow you higher consciousness in alleviating their grip. We will suggest a few things that will help, if you choose to experiment. Over the next couple of weeks you can use your body as a tool in this alleviation. You can create any physical cue you find to be a reminder, but we will suggest simple cues for each Axis. These are to be used in any single moment when you “photograph” yourself in the potential throes of Chief Feature. For Sages and Artisans, the physical cue to help you dissolve a moment of Chief Feature, is to gently SMILE. Literally Smile and generate internally a humor in the moment, an affection for your “trickster.” Smile, feel it move through your centers, and then proceed. We state here that this is not a solution, it is a tool. When the Sages and Artisans can see their Fears as children simply demanding attention, they can smile, “wink” internally to acknowledge the distraction, and affectionately “scoot” the Chief Feature on. Remember times when you, yourself, were a nuisance, but merely sought acknowledgment. For Warriors and Kings, we suggest a moment to bring your attention to your POSTURE. Kings and Warriors are either too rigid while in the throes of Chief Feature, or they are wearing down and slumping, protecting the Moving Center. In your moment, simply adjust your Posture. Just for a moment, sit up straight, feel yourself return to a place of empowerment, or relax, sigh out a relief and just let your posture go. When Warriors and Kings can see their Fears as servants and protectors that are overworking or without direction, they can easily transform them. Remember times when you became overbearing in your impact on someone, but merely sought to do what you thought was “right”. Priests and Servers can use the physical cue of taking their palms and gently resting their face in them, spreading the palms and pulling the hands back as if to wash the face. Do this gently and with a conscious realization that you were hiding. This symbolic gesture will literally have the potential to remove a layer of energy you carried as a mask of strength. If you are in public, using one hand, caressing one cheek then the other, as if you are wiping away a spider web, can do a great deal in reminding you that you are “human.” If Priests and Servers can see their Fears as Healed Events that have overstayed their welcome, they can encourage a release of them, making a decision that it is not necessary to nurture or uphold these things that were once important. Remember times when you, yourself, had completed a relationship in someone’s life, knowing it was time to “move on”. Many Priest and Servers hang on to fears because they assume their release will make them lose a part of their identity. Your physical cues, Priests/Servers, go a long way in reminding you that you have an updated identity to fulfill. Scholars, your physical cue appears to be linked to two body parts, your arms and your stomach. When in the throes of your Chief Feature, we suggest making an effort to unfold your arms. This will help you feel more like a participant than an “outsider.” We also suggest taking a moment to place on palm on your stomach, one on over your Heart. In that moment, simply remind yourself, “I am alive.” Scholars can alleviate many of their fears by seeing the Fears as navigational tools, not obstacles. Some Scholars can then allow the Fears to be indications as to what they are studying next, or an indication of what they are least interested in studying and let that go. Remember times when you, yourself, have overpowered a person with your “information” without realizing the need for it was unnecessary or out of context. Your fears behave similarly in their “informing” you. All of the physical cues can be handy to any Role, but we believe these shared here are helpful specifically. We encourage you to discern this for yourselves. We will conclude this topic. We will now open for questions. [ludmila] Many of us will be meeting up in NYC in a few weeks. Were we part of the Alexandrian Mystery School, or some other study group, and if so what is the agenda for our meeting up with each other at this time? [Michael_Entity] Yes, all of you here [in the chat room] were in some way linked to the Alexandria School, but this has no bearing on your gathering in New York City. Your gathering is based on your search for your Entity Members. It is part of your paths as Older Souls and many of you are ready. We could say your only agenda is in validating what many of you have experienced as Essence Recognition. This will catapult many of you into a greater acceptance of self and your individual paths. Some of you are already aware of this, but your contact with each other, even electronically, is changing you. If you choose, trust the embrace of your old friends. [Az61] I am wondering about the sunken Russian Nuclear submarine, the men aboard, etc. I get the feeling that this incident has to do with Russia’s collective evolution after communist rule. Can you comment on it? [Michael_Entity] This event appears to have two levels/angles since one was karmic while the other symbolic. Karmically, this was a group of fragments choosing this as a means to balance previous ship sinking Karma. Nearly all involved have created deaths due to drowning an anonymous vessel. The symbolic level is in the humbling of the search and rescue efforts to require an admission of need for help. This helps move maturity in many directions. As we have said, this period of time recently has been a period of time to ASK for help. It is part of a global experience. This sinking symbolized this to a great degree for many. [Jan] What is the task phrase of Entity 3 in Cadre 1. Also what are the positive and negative poles of Entity 3 (Cadre 1). [Michael_Entity] It could be described that the Task of Entity 3 in your Cadre is “to present alternative angles on reality.” The Positive and Negative Poles of any Entity 3 are +Enterprise and -Versatility. These poles indicate the ability of Entity 3’s position within the Cadre to manifest cohesively any imaginative idea or to manifest them in pieces without depth. Imagine the differences between a complete stage production vs a variety show with no discernible theme. Entity 3’s tend to leave the most records of a civilization behind. [Dewliet] Would Michael please comment on occurrences in other parallels that have an impact on my life now, and the manifestation of such impact? [Michael_Entity] Parallels without exception never impact another Parallel, except on an informational level. Random impact would defeat their point. What can occur though is a search, either done specifically as Personality using techniques for viewing the parallels, or on an Essence Level. This search, or openness, to the various Parallels can then be bridged into making an impact on you. The only way they impact you is through your search though, never as a “surprise” or random bleedthrough. Some of you are very open to your Parallels and have many conscious/unconscious receptors “checking them out” all the time. This still does not mean they impact you on their own, it simply means you are bridging the “gap” and allowing the affect based on information and choice “here”. In the case of the “washing” we spoke of earlier, that was not an indication of other parallels impacting you, but of THIS parallel’s comprehension of paths not chosen. This is occurring with you, too. This forum is not conducive to exploring your personal parallels, but we can work with you individually or when this forum is used for that topic specifically. [MaryBV] Could Michael please expand a bit on the information available about Entity 01, Cadre 01? Perhaps a bit more information on the agreements Terri has with her entity mates on the list, a bit more information on the “rift” in the She-hulks and what the “fight” is all about, and why re there no other Kings around from the entity? [Michael_Entity] In general, the fragment known as Terri is entertainingly creating a context to explore the strengths of being female and being “strong.” She will play out many instances where her private and public life will clearly be about serious decisions centered on her personal strength in the context of a woman. This is inspiring to many fellow Entity Mates and allows dialogue, support, camaraderie, and community to evolve into a definitely tangible space, internally and externally. There are too many individual Agreements to cover within this forum and many are quite personal and “private.” We will leave her discovery and choice to act on them to her. There is no real “fight” within Entity One, merely a rift in alignment. Some of Entity One is recovering from lives chosen that created a great deal of emotional pain in other lives. That part of the Entity is spending a great deal of this life healing and recovering, sometimes manifested in territorial and reactive ways, as those who were harmed are interacted with. Another part of the Entity, those you relate to, have a different rate of comprehension and healing, therefore the work of communion and reunion can occur more fluidly. As for the Kings, they will come. They are not missing. We have seen two more Kings looking at your list, females. We believe they will introduce themselves quite clearly on their own. [Note: Yes, Barbara/Bobbie is a King.] [Momhawk] Relating back to the E-report. I definitely got ‘hit’ last Sunday (very interesting info too btw…thank you :-)…Got hit 4th, 5th and 6th chakras, ie; bronchitis, sore throat, and head cold, all at once. Michael has stated that colds are often fear related. What ‘core’ or ‘central’ fear is this reflecting that I may be ‘dealing with’ currently? [Michael_Entity] This is not about Fear in this case, it is about mourning. Considering the amount of externalized energy you have expended toward the expectation of several changes, you finally allowed the energy to just move down to a tangible level to handle the mourning. There were many versions of you being explored over the past few months. Many of those “selves” will not manifest in “this” reality. You know this. In that knowing, there is mourning in the recognition of unmet expectations and paths that will simply not “fit” in right now. Your physical symptoms are your process of the past. We suggest you to allow your move forward be freed from the distractions of what has “gone wrong” in the past. Let your body work through this all, if you choose to, and trust that process. On your daily level then, approach ONE thing with enthusiasm and renewed inspiration. Just choose one thing. Allow yourself to be concerned all you want about many things, but include at least one thing that you will simply “know” will work out. Input all that is obviously necessary for that one thing, but “know” that whatever course it takes, you have decided it will be the “right” one, no matter what the expectation. We will close here. Goodnight.
  5. Michael Speaks 121408 [Michael Entity]: Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with responses to questioning from Sandy. [sandy]: I would like to ask about concurrents. Do they have identical overleaves? I assume role, casting and age would be the same, is that correct? [Michael Entity]: We will respond to your question after clarifying a differentiation: We clarify because there are three terms we see being used by our students: "simultaneous," "concurrent," and "parallel." Variations of a single incarnation (branching out into "parallels" of dimensions) are usually what we prefer to call "parallel lives." These share a single starting point. "Concurrent" is used to represent various incarnations of one essence in various dimensions and space, but during the same time frame. Variations of Essence incarnating within a relatively close proximity of time, but in separate starting points, we prefer to refer to as "Concurrents." While "Simultaneous" lives is often used interchangeably. With that clarified, Concurrents most often do have a completely different design of Personality, though, of course the Essence dynamics are the same. There are no rules, of course, and sometimes Concurrents might share the same Overleaves design so as to have a similar approach to different geo-cultural contexts within the Physical Plane during a time period. The main emphasis is geographical. Concurrents RARELY live within any proximity to each other, Physically. [sandy]: rarely but not never? [Michael Entity]: Sandy, some Concurrents have crossed paths, but this has usually been devastating or "mind-blowing." [Geraldine]: How are IMs handled when two or more lives are being experienced concurrently -- what happens when one finishes an IM -- does it affect the others? [Michael Entity]: There are two arcs of Internal Monads: those related to the physical, emotional, intellectual development of the Personality, and those related to the evolution of Essence. The Internal Monads for the various Concurrents' Personalities would be independent, but each Concurrent would contribute to the arc of Internal Monads for Essence. [luluaussi]: are concurrents ever aware of one another? what if one concurrent died? [Michael Entity]: Toni, yes, some of our students have Concurrents, each of which are aware of the others, but rarely do they find a way to validate this or even to cross paths. When a Concurrent dies, the experience for remaining Concurrents is unaffected unless the remaining Concurrents have a specific interest and sensitivity to the exiting of a Concurrent. [luluaussi]: what of dreamspace? [Michael Entity]: Most Concurrents do have intimate awareness of each other in "dreamspace," or what we would call the Astral Plane. This is because it is nearly vital to remain aware of each other's projected paths of choice so as not to cross paths. [sandy]: so does this mean that when two channels say the John Doe of history is now John Smith and another says he is now Sue Brown they can both be correct? [Michael Entity]: Sandy, sometimes Concurrents contribute to the lack of sequential timelines for Past Life explorations, yes. Parallels do the same. [sandy]: I was thinking of Mozart, different channels have given different current incarnations as being that essence. Can they both or all be correct? [Michael Entity]: Sandy, sometimes this is so, but more often this is the projection and inaccuracy of the channel. [sandy]: any way to tell? [Michael Entity]: We know of few species who can track the incarnations of one Essence over multiple lives. This seems to be a built-in system of protection, so to speak, so that one lifetime's activities are never imposed upon another lifetime. [sandy]: Thank you Michael. [Michael Entity]: So we would say this is a matter of personal scrutiny and self-validation based on the value the information might have for you. [luluaussi]: Yes Thank you Michael this has been very helpful to me. [Michael Entity]: In species where current lifetimes of past Essence incarnations can be tracked, there is a spirituality in place that allows for the consistency of memories to also transcend the space between lives. In some, this is simply part of the world, but in others, it had a devastating effect during the Mature Soul cycle. [luluaussi]: and if there is a sensitivity, does the remaining Concurrent pick up where the other left off...from the perspective of that concurrent? [Michael Entity]: Toni, no, each Concurrent has its own life, independent from the others. There is no "picking up" necessary. [luluaussi]: I see. [Michael Entity]: NEXT QUESTION: Kathryn [Kathryn41]: Scholars are said to hold experience energies in their bodies that may manifest as physical ailments or problems. What advice would Michael offer for releasing these types of energies (I suspect I am experiencing these problems right now) [Michael Entity]: Our response would be two-fold: Absorbing, Carrying, Processing experiences for a Scholar is so intrinsic that for a Scholar to ask this is almost the same as someone asking, "Essences are said to have bodies when they incarnate to the Physical Plane; what advice is there for alleviating Essence from having a body?" We point this out because it is a valid reality and substance that a Scholar contends with more than other Essences. In other words, it is not your imagination. Scholars not only absorb, carry, and process their own experiences, the experiences of those within observational proximity, but they share the work of being "drop points" for Entity members they may never even have known existed. Scholars are the equivalent of hubs and routers in many ways for the Entity and Cadre. [Kathryn41]: So, I guess I am asking about how to process more effectively [Michael Entity]: The second part of our response would be more specific to your question and that would be that Scholars would do well to create a ritual that allows for them to "upload" or "clear their cache." This can be done by simply sitting, standing, opening the arms, feet apart a bit, and consciously feeling the "LIFT" of energy being released to Essence. The wider this sense of openness, the more likely the effect will be profound and valid. Close the eyes, open the arms, and imagine the flow of release from all extremities moving to and through and out the Heart "up" to Essence. For most Scholars, the "tingle" will be tangible as the release flows. [Ingun]: Like surrender it to Essence? [Michael Entity]: Yes, Ingun, that is correct. The reason this is a valid practice for Scholars is because the Personality often "holds on to" all of the collected energy until it is UNDERSTOOD. And much of what is collected cannot and will not be processed by the Personality. [Kathryn41]: oh yes [Kathryn41]: any recommendations on how often to perform this 'ritual'? [marion]: would this work for other roles as well? [Michael Entity]: Adding to the physical actions of this release, a simple, ecstatic phrase/mantra during the release might be: "I don't have to understand it all." [Kathryn41]: (oooo - it works! I just tried it!) [Ingun]: Well isn't that a way all of us could use, like when we don't understand or can't cope with something ... just give it over to Essence? [Michael Entity]: Kathryn, we would suggest doing this any time you felt the impulse. Once it is done, one might begin to sense when one starts to "fill up" and needs to clear. [Kathryn41]: thank you Michael. That is a real help [Michael Entity]: Ingun and Marion: yes, we would agree. All fragments could do well to update, upload, and release accumulated experiences to Essence. In fact, this would help alleviate the burden on your fellow Scholars for doing it for you. What we described here is not the same thing as "surrender" when one is within a situation one cannot control. This is simply a clearing practice for releasing that which Personality does not have the capacity for processing or is already ready for uploading to Essence. Keep in mind that while Essence does have the capacity for observing and being a part of the most intimate details of your life, it is rather blind without the Personality's openness and sustaining of consciousness. [Kathryn41]: makes a lot of sense [Michael Entity]: Many fragments wait until Astral review during dreams, or between lives, to update Essence. The practice we described can help with keeping that line open to Essence and relieving the Body from unnecessary weights to process. [Kathryn41]: Thank you again [Michael Entity]: For Scholars, it can be, as we said, "I don't have to UNDERSTAND it all." For the Expression Axis it can be "I don't have to SAY/CREATE it all." For the Action Axis, it can be "I don't have to DEFEND/LEAD everything!" And for the Inspirational Axis it might be "I don't have to TEND/HEAL it all!" Or more simply put: "I don't have to Understand/Express/Do/Be it all!" Speaking this during the simple meditation we offered, and speaking it with realization, not defense, can be profound. NEXT QUESTION: TONI [luluaussi]: If I am understanding correctly, the Unites States has shifted into the Mature Soul paradigm. My question relates to Soul Age shifts....how does one best navigate into a new Soul Age....I have been told that, like the US, I am evolving from one age to the next (Mature to Old in this case) and would like to understand how we can transition in the most effective manner .... and not hide in a cave til we get our land legs.... [Michael Entity]: We know of only one way to navigate from one Soul Age to the next and "get your land legs," so to speak, and that is through experience, and the collection of experience AT YOUR OWN PACE. There is no hurry. The "cave" becomes less and less necessary as experience is accumulated, but there are no short cuts. "The cave" of which you speak is a valid sanctuary for review and processing of experiences so that when one "peeks out" again, there is confidence. [luluaussi]: what I feel is a precipice...to fall or soar and that is creating a sense of vertigo..... [luluaussi]: both inner world and outer as this country transitions too [Michael Entity]: If one feels that one is hiding, then one would want to explore the self-karmic story that might be related to the pressure one feels in that space between "land legs" and "cave." Transiting a Soul AGE, let alone a Level, is inherently an "unknown," or "precipice." [luluaussi]: is it like womb to walking? [luluaussi]: how would one explore "self-karmic" stories ... Sagely speaking [Michael Entity]: In using an evolutionary theme as an analogy, the Womb is more like the Infant Soul Age; Potty Training is Baby Soul Age; Walking is Young; Driving is Mature; Flying is Old. [luluaussi]: so am learning to fly?.... told myself that isn't dream once.... [Michael Entity]: Exploring Self-karmic stories is best done through examining the push/pull of the experience; the polarities, which are usually quite obvious. Often these are found in the "shoulds" and "shouldn'ts" of an issue. [luluaussi]: I see. [Michael Entity]: "Should/But Don't" or "Shouldn't/But Do" [luluaussi]: OK [Michael Entity]: The resolution is often then found in the BUT part of the equation. [luluaussi]: Wow this is sooooo helpful [Michael Entity]: The BUT is often yours; the SHOULDS are someone else's. [Kathryn41]: ah [Michael Entity]: The resolution comes when you embrace your BUT, which then allows clearer room for your SHOULD/N'T, which can then be acted upon, or released as necessary to your choice. We have been lacking in puns for a while, and believe this will help in bring some levity to this equation. [luluaussi]: guess I really need to examine my response to those SHOULDS and stop letting myself get hogtied with BUT? [Michael Entity]: Your statement would be one we agree with, Toni. NEXT QUESTION: Ingun [Ingun]: Kundalini is a word and topic that is attached with so many “pictures” or labels or beliefs for instance coming from the belief that the body is an illusion. I also understand that the Kundalini is a physical energy and can have different effects depending on which chakra or channels in the body it is running through or one intentionally runs it through. I would like Michael to share some information about the Kundalini energy and clear out some misinformation. [luluaussi]: Cool.Thanks this has been most helpful! [Michael Entity]: That is a rather large topic, but we will respond briefly here, and invite further discussion with this as a specific topic at some point. [Ingun]: Yes, some brief information will do well. [Michael Entity]: What is called "Kundalini" energy is what we would call Higher Moving Energy; this is the energy that flows to, from, and through the Higher Moving Center and what might be called the Second Chakra/Sacral Chakra. While all Higher Centers are accessible to the Body and Personality, the Higher Moving is the most readily accessible, as it is "rooted deeper" in the Body. Emphasizing study and consciousness on this particular Energy is Good Work, but is as susceptible to as many misconceptions and misdirections as any other activity for a group or individual. We would simply say that emphasis on this Energy would do well to be tempered with awareness of the Higher Emotional and Higher Intellectual Centers/Energies as well. This Kundalini Energy is just that: Energy. But Energy has both a positive and a negative pole, which could be described as Beauty and Chaos, respectively. What helps Energy to move toward Beauty are the structures and awareness that are a part of Truth and Love. In other words, our brief response would be that Energy, Truth, and Love are the building blocks of your Universe, personally and universally, and one cannot be explored without the inclusion of the others. We have much more to say about this, but will explore this more fully in other discussions. NEXT QUESTION: Ladislaus [Ingun]: This is just perfect. Thank you. [Ladislaus]: Michael, I have a seemingly frivolous question. Humans like to party. To drink, dance, socialize, throwing balls and masquerades, playing party games, go to cocktail parties, discos, formal dinners, etc. From whence comes this party-impulse? Is is just a marginal break from more heavy and important things, a way of "taking a rest" and recuperate? Or is is in itself something central and important? That is my question. [Michael Entity]: As the soul evolves, it continues to have access to all levels and ages accumulated by that soul. One of the first realms of experience gained by Essence is the realm of dance, altered states, celebration, lack of inhibition, and tribal rituals. At whatever Soul Age one is, this level of self is drawn from the Infant Soul aspects of your history and experience. In this same way, the Older souls draw from the Baby Soul Age experiences to sustain civility and law and order; the Young Soul Age to be able to HAVE and contribute and compete; the Mature Soul Age for sensitive empathy and activism and self-awareness. The older one's soul gets, the more one begins to utilizing these levels and ages appropriate to current choices, circumstances, and contexts. It is Good Work for the Older Soul to let down his or her hair and dance with the Infant Soul inside, so to speak. [luluaussi]: en-joy, so to speak/ [Michael Entity]: And it is true that, for some, this is a method for "taking a rest" and "recuperating," because this is a return to the nurturing force from which you spring, finding yourself back in the safety of the womb, figuratively speaking, and embracing the validity of your right to BE. The Right to feeling REAL. For some, it can be used as an escape, of course, but it is also a valid direction for embracing the deepest sense of presence one can have as a Physical Being. We have never been ones to encourage the denial of this level of your experience. It makes little sense to us to deny the very foundation upon which every other important structure and meaning is built. To return to that part of you is to check in on your foundations and correct any shifts. CHAT MUST END... REPAIRMEN HERE! Sorry!
  6. I have a question for the community. Michael has said that, "Scholars within any Entity or Cadre tend to act as record keepers and act as the responsible party for updating the Akashic Records involving events within and throughout the Entity and/or Cadre." Regarding the merging process on the 5th Level of the Astral where "Entity members work through full disclosure," Michael has said that Priests are the "fragments who run these meetings, and help to direct the healing," and that, "Every Role has a part in the processes of the Higher Astral, but it is organized and directed by the Priests." These are pretty specified jobs. What about Servers, Artisans, Warriors, Sages, and Kings? What "Job" do they perform for their Entity/Cadre? Has Michael already given this information any where?
  7. March 2, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel Conscious Connection to Essence 3 of 3 Note: This series begins with Michael Speaks -- Conscious Connection to Essence (1 of 3) [Michael_Entity] Hello to all. We are here. One moment. In our sharing with you our various perspectives of what is and isn’t being conscious of Essence, we believe a practical examination of each Essence Role would be beneficial. In our examination we will share what we perceive are the Maya (or Great Lesson) of that particular role and a more ‘organic’ approach to determining what might be considered rejection of Essence or what might be considered acceptance of Essence. We will note here that the positive and negative poles of the Essence ARE NOT indications of being conscious or accepting of Essence. A fragment in the Negative Poles is just as potentially “in Essence” as a fragment in the positive poles, at least in terms of experiencing its life. What we have sought to exchange with you is what it means to reject Essence or accept Essence as part of your primary being. Those who reject Essence are in deep isolation and a myriad of other traumatic or deteriorating experiences, regardless of how together their life appears or how wonderful their work and relationships and successes are. Those who are accepting and conscious of Essence usually have the enthusiasm to ‘make the best of everything’, even in the midst of what ‘should’ be devastating. Poverty, drama, accidents, horror are NOT signs of disconnection from Essence, they are merely experiences. A positive pole role can still be at its apparent ‘best’ yet still be disconnected from Essence. A negative pole role can be as difficult and trying as expected, and be conscious. The keys are in the act of Decisions and CHOICES. In the moments of your darkest despair, if you can “look up” and recognize that this space is simply where you are at the moment, even if you seek no resolution beyond that realization, half of your battle is completed. When you say “yes, this is where I am right now, I know I could do something but I do not feel like it right now”, you have granted yourself an open door to Essence. Acknowledging your state of mind, your resistance, your struggles, etc. are in that very moment your decision and choice to allow or change, you become immediately centered and present, regardless of your choice in either direction. This will immediately and in that moment connect you consciously to Essence. This does not mean your mood or situation will magically remove itself from your life, but you have opened your world and option for greater probabilities by that single choice, a millionfold. Besides your initial acknowledgment that you may have dropped your connection to Essence, we will say that the most powerful and profound choice you can make next is to ASK FOR HELP. The body is not designed to sustain animation and life without connection to Essence for any extended period of time once sentience has moved in. We want to note at this point that there is no REAL disconnection from Essence; we merely use these terms for convenience, even the term ‘rejection’ is inaccurate in light of the truth, but these terms capture the experience and we will continue to use them with this understanding. We will begin now with each Essence, but first, we will pause for a few questions, if there are any, about what we have shared thus far. [nemo999] What are the most common states of mind? Pleasure, pain, depression, sadness, happiness, attention, boredom … are these states of mind or are they illusion? [Michael_Entity] This set of descriptions are only conveniences to describe whatever a person interprets as their reality in the moment. They are highly subjective and can refer to either illusions or what you have called ‘states of mind.’ They are all ‘real’ to a person experiencing. The definition of ‘illusion,’ or Maya as we prefer, is in the apparent indulgence in a ‘truth’ that is subjectively inappropriate for the fragment. There are some Maya that are shared collectively, some that are individual. Despite the fact that Personal Truth will render all of these experiences “real”, we will share a little of our perception. Depression from your list can be considered a collective ‘illusion,’ and one that is a deep indulgence in Maya, though very ‘real’ when inside of it. Depression is a resigned stance toward the life, an emotional suicide based on one or more of the Chief Features. This is not a judgment. When one is in Depression, we differentiate this from Grief. Depression is literally the consistent and insistent effort to reject the life. If Depression is being experienced, acknowledge that you are where you are in your experience, and ask for help. Depression is one of many Maya that creates a situation where intervention from outside forces is required. Pain from your list can be either Maya or “real”, but is always a symptom of resistance or friction, which we do not see as inherently good or bad, merely resistance to some Growth. Pleasure is always a symptom of higher awareness and connection to Essence. Sadness can be either, though if tears are involved, recognition of a truth on some level is occurring. If there are no tears, this is most likely a form of Depression. Boredom is always a symptom of Maya and is a literal self-lie to remove responsibility. When Boredom is indulged in, you are living in a space of time that was created from want of “having more time”, then when it arrives, you seek to fill it. This all happens because creation on the Physical Plane is denser and slower, therefore the space and time sought “shows up”, but sometimes out of synch with your faster moving mind. Making a note that Boredom is a sign of forgetting your original intentions can help make more of that time. It is not required, of course, that you continue with your original intentions, but release the judgments about EXPERIENCING the slowing of time and take a moment to stop. When we say this is a self-lie to remove responsibility, we mean this in terms of being able to respond, not in terms of discipline. [Azure362] What happens when one fragment is deriving pleasure from another fragment’s pain? Here is where I get confused. This encompasses all these levels, personal or collective, as in when society feels some sort of pleasure at putting some fragment to death, as in capitol punishment. So this would not be true connection to Essence then? So it is safe to say that some pleasures are of Maya? [Michael_Entity] That is difficult to reconcile within the confines of the Physical Plane. We do not expect you to reconcile that, nor do we think it can be. Sometimes events are not understandable by Personality. We will say, however, that True pleasure is rarely experienced at the expense of another, unless both Essences involved have a mutual agreement for something that is otherwise seen as horrific. We will define true pleasure as being that which retains the recognition of the choice of others. If the choice of other is interfered with, then this cannot be true pleasure, it is only stimulation. And, no, it is not correct to say some pleasures are of Maya. Pleasure that interferes with the life, path, or choice of another is stimulation, not true pleasure. [Azure362] And then it is true pleasure that connects to Essence? I think I am getting it. Sorry, lol, but I see some fragments getting pleasure out of stimulation as such [Michael_Entity] Consider the image of a person gratified by eating a chocolate bar versus that of one being gratified by stealing the chocolate from a child. You will most likely intuit the difference. It is not complex when examined and the differences between self-stimulation and true pleasure are glaring. Again, the difference is in the lack of interference of choice in another. Our system of Personality and Essence is comparatively quite simple and each part of the system is dynamically linked to other parts, leading to what many have called Michael Math. Each role, attitude, CF, center, etc. are all linked by their axis. For instance, the Ordinal Inspiration will have re-evaluation, reserve, stoic, emotional, self-deprecation, and lunar body types, along with the Server, and the attributes of the number one. Therefore, as we discuss each role tonight in its disconnection from Essence, you might also recognize in that disconnection a link to that role’s inherent Chief Feature. In this instance, though, we might call it “The Great Lesson”. This is not a term we prefer, but it is one our channel found appropriate and we do not disagree, though more creative ways of seeing this will surely come from our sharing with you. Therefore, each Essence will have its “Great Lesson” and this ‘lesson’ will always recur each lifetime in some form. There will be no lifetime that does not struggle with this ‘lesson’, however briefly. Regardless of the dynamics of personality and its chosen emphasis of challenge, the Essence IN ITSELF has its challenges, though it is seen from a very different perspective and eagerly played with. This results from Essence “forgetting” the inherent challenges of the physical plane while being Astral. The body has to regain consciousness each lifetime regardless of soul age and seeks to grow back into the soul age last reached in the previous life. We will also note here that each of these scenarios we might mention in regard to the Roles can be applied to each of you since you may relate it to your own CF that then relates to the Role we are describing. Each Role and CF relates to a Chakra, or Center, and this can also lead to connections. We suggest you only focus on your Role for now, figuring in the consideration as to when or whether you are conscious and accepting of Essence, regardless of these extrapolations. We will begin with the SERVER. For now, we will examine the basics. When a Server is conscious and connected to Essence, regardless of its struggles and fears in the life, its Great Lesson is in discovering that it can take care of other things, nurture them, help them, be tremendously effective in catering to the nuances of needs in another all the while being able to care for self. The Server connected to Essence and conscious of that connection chooses to take care of itself no matter what is happening in the life, knowing inherently that this is the only way to truly be successful in any endeavor. The Server who is not connected to Essence chooses not only to slack in its care of self, but loses its enthusiasm to seek to care for others. This Server will seek in its universe and emphasize in its universe any and all ways to prove that things are not loving, that there is discord and that their own lives are not making a difference. They are self-deprecation, manifest. This Server has its roots in only emphasizing its own and all others inadequacy, or lack of being. This can be overt or subtle, but it will show. Their keys to bringing back a conscious connection to Essence (besides the first vital two steps, recognizing choice for where you are, and then asking for help), is in doing anything physically stimulating. Running, jogging, going dancing, anything with dirt and the ground, and getting a massage. Anything that allows contact PHYSICALLY with what is considered the “outside world” that provides data without judgment. The SERVER more than any other Role can use the past as their world and choose to gauge everything within that context, therefore, it is successful to release the past and choose experiences that bring the Server more “presence.” Next we will comment on the ARTISAN. The Artisan who is conscious of and connected to Essence is one that has learned to allow happiness into the life. This may seem deceptively simple and universally applicable, but any true Artisan can tell you that it is one of their Great Lessons to learn to like receiving and indulging in the pleasures of this world. An Artisan who is connected and conscious with Essence has true joy and enthusiasm for the life, allowing whatever levels of prosperity and abundance are appropriate at that moment. They have admitted to themselves what they wanted, what they needed, and they are allowing themselves to have it, to create it. The Artisan that is disconnected or rejecting of Essence feels their needs are too great, that they will never get what they deserve or are not worth the life used on them. Artisans are clever in their disconnection from Essence because they have helped to construct a culture that supports it. It plays on other fragments, deriving from them false compassion and pity, but nothing of value to make the life seem “worth it.” The Artisan disconnected from Essence is self-destruction, manifest. They have determined that they are not worth what they want. The Artisan can endure for years and years in this state, far longer than any other role disconnected from Essence, because this state eventually requires others to reach out and care for them, even if they are not making changes, themselves. Eventually, the Great Lesson is learned and the life is transformed. At some point, and probably more dramatically than any other role, a shift in the life occurs. This brings the Artisan into a space that says YES to life, to what it wants, recognizes its needs and says they are worth pursing it for. Ways for the Artisan to connect to Essence in times of recognized disconnection are through any form of artistic expression, but most especially painting or sculpting, making a concerted effort to GET OUT OF THE HOUSE. They can purchase things that feel fun are usually labeled “trivial”, interact with small animals, or dance privately to music. Next we will comment on the WARRIOR. The Warrior when connected and conscious with Essence finds itself in many a challenge against or within the life where there appear to be imbalances. A Warrior that is Conscious recognizes that their very nature requires them to live intentionally and with purpose of action. This means, regardless of its tediousness or turbulence, they are always out to conquer something. The Warrior connected to Essence finds itself in many situations of chaos and disorder as a means to exercise and emphasize what is and isn’t Power or Empowering. More than any other role they are more perpetually in crisis or challenge because this is truly where their “heart” lies. It may not be acceptable or as “easy” as other roles’ experiences or what the culture supports, but it is their world and it is vital. The symptoms of a Warrior connected to Essence can most likely be seen in gauging the strengths of their relationships. The Warrior disconnected or rejecting Essence feels that their life is one unrolling world of chaos and they determine they are just ‘lucky’ for what they have, relinquishing effort to make a path. More than any other role, even if arguably, the Warrior that is disconnected from Essence spends it life seeking approval and recognition, while consistently remaining in the shadows. The disconnected Warrior lays low, evades conflict, and depends on others heavily. The disconnected Warrior has a deep sense that at some point it needs to do or be something specific in order to be loved or recognized. Most of the time, this Warrior has no idea what that “something specific” is and will continue to close its circle of life down until it learns to make choices for itself, grasping that they are in control of their lives; this is their Great Lesson. The disconnected Warrior is Martyrdom manifest. This is another role that can regain connection to Essence by incorporating or balancing with heavy physical activity. Making contact with life in a physical manner that brings data into the body emphasizing security and control, such as Tai Chi or the Alexander Technique, a sport that requires coordination, or can all bring the Essence back into the picture. Asking to be held, or holding someone important can help, as well. We will address the SCHOLAR now. The Scholar that is connected to Essence and conscious has learned its Great Lesson, which revolves around the reality of shared love. This Scholar has realized with a great amount of profundity that they will not love another until they have sought to love themselves. As we have said, there are many of these Role symptoms you all may find applicable, but for each Role, you will see they are a deeper lesson when specifically considered. All other Roles have an “easier” time at loving and being loved than the Scholar does. The Scholar who is connected to Essence has realized they are whole and complete, that they like themselves and have decided to trust and open their hearts to their life. They recognize that ALL aspects of life are capable of being loved, even themselves and all the hard times passed through. When the Scholar is disconnected or rejecting of Essence, they do their best to ignore their lives, to resist the examination that not everything is fine. This Scholar refuses to examine their vulnerabilities and have not dealt with their shadow feelings, resulting in acts of dominance or power struggles. They have never experienced intimacy of any depth due to these things. They become adept at arguing their points, ignoring the pains of their past, destroying or deteriorating any relationship or person whom touches too closely too personal areas of pain and sensation. They are Stubbornness manifest. They, more than any other Role, truly fear what is called love. The disconnected Scholar can still bring in a definite resource of love into their lives, but this is usually sought only out of need for refuge, a place to securely hold up the walls around their own hearts. The Scholar disconnected from Essence can be one of the most painful and emotionally tormenting of all exchanges for someone trying to love them. Some suggestions for bringing more of Essence in might be to talk to children about their perspective on life, actually play with children or play on a child’s playground. Seeking laughter of any kind brings Essence immediately back in for a Scholar. Seeking the experience of the aroma and visuals of botanical gardens or observing the ocean can help, or having flowers within visual and olfactory range. We will address the SAGE now. The Sage in connection to Essence is the most obvious and closest to what the positive pole describes. They are TALKING. The Sage connected to Essence, regardless of what they are communicating, is at least communicating. They seek to express any and all feelings and thoughts as a means for communication. When they are angry, you know it, when they are sad, you know it, when they are happy, you know it; they will gladly tell you and tell everyone else. The Sage who is disconnected from Essence becomes silent. Of all the roles, the Sage is the most tender and fragile of all roles. We do not imply this negatively. This is simply because they are the “children” of our universe, and no physical age or soul age will ever change this. It is their “job”. As this Role pertains to communication, children, and the Intellectual Center or fifth (Throat) Chakra, you can see the fragility in a child who has been driven or shunned into silence, when the child hangs its head to cover the vulnerable communication center. This can be reflected in all ages of a Sage, as well. When a Sage has gone silent they are rejecting Essence, losing consciousness. In fact, forms of silence can range through all forms of suppression. This means this Role more than most is susceptible to addictions and substance abuses, anything to redirect the energies from having to address what wants to be said. They are Greed manifest, as they fixate on something they feel they do not have enough of, and remain struggling to attain this at the expense of life and self. Their Great Lesson is in realizing their expression and feelings are important, that what they have to say about what they are experiencing is important to someone, even if this starts out being just themselves. Ways for the Sage to regain consciousness and connection are through writing letters, reading personal journal entries to someone who will listen, sharing a personal story or poetry, trusting what you feel about a person when you first meet them, and singing out loud. We will address the PRIEST now. The Priest who has a connection to Essence realizes that life is full of many truths and each experience has its own truth. More than any other role, this role when connected to Essence has a deep and profound trust in life, knowing with true perception how to pass through the next moments and lead others through those confusions in life as well. Life is intuitively navigated. When disconnected, this Essence lives in a world of concepts and ideas, rational thinking and over-analysis. This would normally seem harmless, but the Priest disconnected from Essence enforces these rationales, ideas, and over-analysis to the point of destroying the life or misleading others as a means for false validation of beliefs. They lose their ability to adapt to the nuances of life and seek only to remain in a predefined, structured, and thought out picture of life. This removes their ability to intuit and trust in life, but creates severe judgment and enforcement of fear. This Role more than any other Role can make a lie become a profound but false truth about themselves, life, or others. They are Arrogance manifest. To help bring the Priest back into connection, we suggest to this Role more than any other to literally make time to communicate to what you consider to be your higher self, every day. We also suggest purchasing or making a set of cards with inspirational affirmations or a book of quotes that can be a “message” or “thought for the day”, or whenever in need, to help lend insight from someplace beyond analysis. And finally the KING, we will comment on. The King who has a connection to Essence is keenly aware of the fact of all possibilities, a sense of connection to all of its life. The King connected to Essence does not just live the life, it IS the life as well. This King recognizes that it is the source of all of its life, through choice, creation, and from even higher. This King sees no separation based on time or space, but only the beautiful unfolding of a life as perfect, no matter what. They do not judge the life, themselves, or others for their position in it, but instead recognizes itself in everything around it. This King has dealt with what might be called its “dark side” and now sees through that state in others, recognizing all the illusions. Limitation is never seen as an obstacle, but an important aspect of life to help direct growth. A King who has rejected Essence becomes highly separated from its life, separated within itself, and from others. Its Great Lesson is in acknowledging they are a PART of everything and everyone, not APART. This King is caught in circles of self-gratification and simple distraction for stimulation. They feel they alone are completely responsible for all achievements in life and resist any help in any form, in fact, sometimes violently. This King rejects people outright due to imperfections reflected from self and creates enormous amounts of Space and Time between those who are their most powerful support. They are Impatience manifest. This King who is rejecting of Essence will forever remain in a circle of development since they allow no other influences or support into their lives. Ways for a King to bring back a sense of connection to Essence is through visiting spiritual temples for moments of quiet and reflection, watching or reading information shared by spiritual leaders they resonate with. They can make changes in the life that reflects a commitment to the acknowledgement of the life force in all others, such as through vegetarianism or volunteer work. More than any other Role, we would have to doubly emphasize that this Role could benefit from ASKING FOR HELP. We will conclude here. Since this session ran so long, we will not be able to respond to questions in this forum, but we invite your questions through your list or discussion forum at Otterly’s [aka Troy Tolley] site. Good Night.
  8. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: July 2004] [H2OSprtlvr] We were talking about the 9/11 movie by Michael Moore and it was mentioned that he is a Sage and he had a reincarnation from Josiah Royce. This seems confusing to me that he is a Sage, because all the studying and fact finding is so Scholar. I was wondering where the Scholar might be in his personality, since Sages only want to have fun and are not into fact finding or writing books. [M Entity] First we will say that we have never said, nor have we implied, that Sages “only want to have fun” and that they are not “into fact finding or writing books”. This conclusion is highly simplified and inaccurate of the Sage and of the Scholar. The very Essence of a Sage is to find the Truth and then to disseminate what they have come to believe is true. In that search for the Truth, they will use any means possible. The stereotype of the Sage comes from the fact that in most cases a Sage's method of “fact-finding” and “writing books” simply ends up looking like so much more “fun”. By contrast, the Scholars have been responsible for some of the most influential and “beautiful” music on your planet. This could look contrary to the stereotype of the Scholar, but in fact the Scholar finds the connection between music and math to be one of the most beautiful aspects of life on earth and if that can be translated into music, they will try. We explain this to you to help contribute to your broadening understanding of the Roles of Sage and Scholar. This is not to say that the fragment now known as Michael Moore does not have Scholar influences, because, in fact, he actually does. This Sage is Scholar-Cast, with a Server Essence Twin. [H2OSprtvr] I realize I was stereotyping and I'm grateful for further clarification on the roles. [M Entity] Comparing the lives of Beethoven and Royce/Moore can give you great insight into the differences between how a Sage-Cast Scholar (Beethoven) vs. a Scholar-Cast Sage (Michael Moore) may act within a lifetime. In most cases, a Sage-Cast individual will behave more like the “stereotypical” Sage than a Sage with different Casting. Furthermore, in most instances when a fragment is behaving like one of the Essence “stereotypes”, it is usually an indicator of that person's Casting than of their Role. [freyaisissuz] That’s great, Troy, I will keep it short. I have sensed a connection with J Royce/M Moore. Is he a “reality shifter” or “dream maker” as in cadre 1/entity 3; if another, where? [M Entity] That is a valid observation. This is a fragment some of our channels would call a “wild card” within Cadre One, Entity Three, as well. This fragment is one of the youngest soul ages in that Entity. (3rd Level Mature) [BradburySE] Who is this other “Dogma Dismantler” besides Michael Moore of whom you spoke in Troy's energy report? Where will we find him, and is he or she now incarnated? [M Entity] Yes, he is incarnated: a Server Essence Twin of the Sage known as Michael Moore. The Server is a reincarnation of William James now focusing on the funneling of necessary requirements as a means to convey the Sage's “truth”. He may only be peripherally identified in the media. We believe he is one of the “producers” of Michael Moore's films, as well as several of his own projects which reflect some of the profound psychology explored in his previous life as William James. This relationship would appear to be more like a Task Companion relationship, but that is not the case. The relationship is taut with disagreements and power struggles, regardless of the powerful results.
  9. May 21, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor THANKS TO MaryBV for Moderating and Transcribing! [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. Hello to all of you. The format tonight appears to be set in the “open floor” context, so we will simply open the floor and begin taking your questions as they come. You may begin. We do not have any comments to begin with. [MaryBV] I would like to know if there are any combination of Overleaves that cause people to be tardy for things, i.e., those perpetually late people. [Michael_Entity] Though there can be many factors involved, it is usually the effects of the “exalted” Overleaves that creates a lack of linear perception of Time. Ordinality is usually “closer” to comprehending Time and its implications, since Ordinality is more focused. This is not completely consistent, but it is a factor to consider. The primary Overleaf determining the experience and utilization of Time is the ATTITUDE. Exalted Attitudes can become quite “lost” in the restricted frameworks. Many who have an Exalted Attitude with a self-karmic situation to contend with concerning Time will create a challenge through the Chief Features of Martyrdom and Impatience. This will create the wonderfully-charged issues around Time and Space for them. We would think many would assume that the more exalted Roles might have “trouble” with Time, or that the more Inputs an Essence has, the more trouble they might have, but this is not consistent and is surprisingly more of the opposite. Those with One Input (Warriors, Kings, and Scholars) will have more trouble with Time than other Roles. Priest and Servers will be next, and Sages and Artisans having the least. Again, this is not a rule, but a reference. We have observed that those with one input are more likely to have trouble “multitasking” or “shifting gears” as they create routines and schedules to accommodate life. Those with more Inputs can gauge Time while they function on other levels. What we have mentioned in our response are just suggestions, not answers. Observe these for validation, if you choose. It is a place to start. [Nick] Is there a method that can be used to become more creative? [Michael_Entity] There is never a time when you are not being Creative. What most are asking when they ask such a question is, “how can I feel more alive?” Determining the context in which you are trying to specifically channel your creativity is a first step. This can be done by noticing what it IS that makes you “feel alive.” Therein lies the clues to what you may have “inside you” longing to take form. We believe understanding your Role in Essence is a good place to start. Each Role has a basic NEED to create and a default Creation. PRIESTS and Servers NEED to create Inspiration, with the Priest defaulting to Guidance in the Positive and Steering in the Negative; Servers with Nurturing in the Positive and Manipulation in the Negative. Sages and Artisans NEED to create Expression, with Sages defaulting to Fun in the positive and Turbulence in the Negative; Artisans to create Structure in the Positive Pole and in the Negative, Stricture. Kings [and Warriors] NEED to create ACTION, with Kings defaulting to creating Progression in the Positive Pole and Enforcement in the Negative; Warriors creating Cohesion in the Positive, while creating Protection in the Negative. Scholars NEED to create ASSIMILATION, with Transformation in the Positive and Consumption in the Negative. There are many words to choose from to capture the spectrum from positive to negative in terms of anything, but these words are accurate to their point. Knowing your Role will give you, at least, a context to get started in permitting yourself to FEEL the creativity that is “natural” to you. As with many questions asked in an “open floor” forum, we will only be able to touch partially on the vastness of what is possible to explore. [ShannonB] I'm asking this for a friend, so I hope I get the gist of it right. Up to what point do roles remain significant or cohesive? Do Cadres have roles, or do the fragments in them retain their roles? [Michael_Entity] Although the Roles will remain a part of Essence throughout an entire Cycle, Essence Roles remain meaningful only as long as there are attachments to the individual Personalities in differentiation. To help explain: Essence as ROLE is the functioning aspect of “you” that is geared toward experiencing division/resistance, while CASTING is geared toward experiencing union/surrender. Essence as ROLE will “think” of all of its incarnations in the way a mother may think of her children. This sense of regard for all of the Personalities experienced lasts through the Causal to some degree. Up to and through the Causal, ROLE will be a reference, though less and less. Upon graduating the Causal, (and even while experiencing the Causal Plane) Casting becomes your primary reference. Once an Entity is entering the Causal, the experiencing of all of the Personalities shifts to a far more united mind, so to speak. Once the Entity begins “thinking as one,” (again, so to speak) only your position within the Entity is then referenced. Entities do not have Roles, though a predominance of Roles does give each Entity a “flavor.” Your ROLE is what you came to incarnations to make “shine” and “manifest,” while Casting is what you simply ARE. To put it another way, you will find that you PLAY your Role, and LIVE your Casting. [JNelson] Michael has mentioned that it is one of their agendas to redefine the current context of the educational system. Would Michael care to elaborate? [Michael_Entity] It is not a primary agenda as we have come across in some of our channeling and channels, but it is an impact we have chosen as our context in most of our incarnations in other parallels as a Transcendental Soul, so this “spills” into our parallels as a nonphysical teacher as well. We believe the incorporation of comprehending the various learning natures of each Essence could do greatly in healing much of the intellectual divisions on your planet. Currently the schooling system is geared toward the methods of Scholars, Warriors and Kings, though the Personality Overleaves may concur or not. Artisans, Sages, Priests, and Servers have no means to learn in a way that is conducive to them. Because of their fluidity, they can manage, but there is a toll. We believe it not to be GOOD WORK to identify children as Roles and start them along an education geared toward that Role, but rather allow the children to gravitate toward and define their Role as they discover it, making all forms of education available in some form at least through the age of 7. It will be obvious early on as to what direction a child may gravitate. Currently, all education before the age of 7 is geared toward the four Roles that are then “left out” as “formal” education begins. We would be willing to outline our entire concept of this in a session focusing on this topic, but this is a glimpse at our basic premise. [Dewliet] Hi Michael – Since I’m due with my second child in July, I was wondering if you could give me some tips on pain management and/or other aspects of childbirth, including techniques and medication that might not be covered in traditional texts? [Michael_Entity] Most of these techniques and medications or meditations for that matter, have been covered. There have been many births on your planet. Ourselves, having given birth hundreds of thousands of times, found that chewing on licorice root relieved a great deal of stress during labor, while the pain was found to be surprisingly easily forgotten. You have medications now that we did not have, and while we do not wish to affect your choice, we do believe enduring the “natural” pain is worth the health of the child. Many children have been given birth while the mother is under heavy medication and the results are not conclusive or consistent, so this would be your choice to use them or not. In your case, we see your knowledge that it is a passing pain, however lightly experienced or difficulty endured, will help. There will be a “knowing” in you that will be calming. This is not a prediction, but rather a comment on your nature. If you look at most of your most painful and difficult changes in your life, most mothers can see a parallel in their birthing. In your case, regardless of what appears, you have a calming knowing that it will pass and you are safe. [Annette] I know that there are special cameras that photograph the aura, and I have witnessed and photographed pictures with shapes, shadows/clouds, and orbs in them 11 days after my father passed away. Are these guides or spirit entities and can you comment on why we are able to see them like this? Are they making attempt to communicate? [Michael_Entity] The Kirlian Photography is a special technique, while flash photography is simply flash photography. Kirlian Photography allows you to see the bioenergetic (etheric) fields of your body in much the same way that iodine allows certain photography to see into the body. In the case of Kirlian Photography, there is a high frequency, electrical charge run through the object to help amplify its energetic emissions. Any camera that is used to photograph the “aura” that does not include the electricity running through the object is simply an EMULATION or simulation and is invalid. They are the equivalence of a kaleidoscope, to some degree. In Flash Photography, there is validity to much of what is seen as a paranormal phenomenon. Much of what are seen as “orbs” are actually microscopic dust particles in that moment, amplified by the flash. When the images are valid, they are not necessarily consciousness trying to communicate, but rather energetic emissions in the environment. When mourning is involved, the emissions can be great. Much of what are valid orbs, in the case of mourning, are merely the releasing of energetic “pockets,” if you will, that allow the fragment passing to “gather themselves.” Letting go of someone is most literal in mourning, even if the fragment being “let go” is still incarnating. Though some patterns are a form of consciousness, most are not, at least in terms of guides and spirits. If a “guide” or “spirit” is able to be photographed, then it is not of Essence, but of Personality as it is attached to the object of interest. That would mean they are not actually guides or spirits, but more like “echoes” of living aspect of themselves. [Annette] How do you know the difference then? [Michael_Entity] Again, another topic that we will not be able to exhaust in this forum. In being able to tell the difference, if there is a consciousness involved in those terms, dreams are more likely their medium of exchange. We dare say that Spirits and Guides (as we know the term) do not hover mid-physical making pretty lights. [JNelson] Would Michael care to outline the ways in which various Roles in Essence learn? [Michael_Entity] In another chat or as a topic on your list, as the time constraints on this session will not permit. We will add, before leaving, that looking at the Needs of Creation we outlined in the beginning will help in seeing the different learning methods. We will conclude here. Goodnight.
  10. February 3, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel Conscious Connection to Essence [Otterly = Troy] Note: This series begins with Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (1 of 3) and concludes with Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (3 of 3). [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. Welcome to you all. We will begin. What we will do tonight, in light of the topic, is take your questions. We believe an open dialogue may find some insights being gained through exchange. We are preparing a larger work of channeling with Otterly that you will see in the next few days. This piece is being asked of us as a means to understand the different “paths” that might be relevant for each Role. This is too large of a topic to cover in a time-limited chat, but we can respond, nonetheless. Absorption of the material will be more comprehensive, as well, as you read it at your leisure. With that, we will begin taking your questions. For now, we will take questions on the topic of gaining a heightened sense of connection to Essence. If there are no questions, we have a not so easily fatigued Sage working with us and can find as much to give him to say as he can himself. We will give you a moment to decide. [ksh] What influences the motion of dowsing with a pendulum? Is it cycled off members of your entity trying to communicate with you? [Michael_Entity] If you choose for it to be. The mechanical aspects of this, along with the biological aspects of this, are simple and random. Anything chosen as a symbol for communication with Essence (or other Essences) can be utilized. Messages can be found in the layering of cheese on a pizza, if that is a medium you relate to. This is a valid means for seeking communication with Essence, choosing your symbols; choosing what makes sense to you as a Personality. In choosing this, you will pass through an initial phase of randomness until you synchronize with what you are using as your symbols. Your pendulum swings may be the meaningless rhythms of your latest nervous state at first, but later, even if in the same state, your “meaningless rhythms” can then become decipherable, even if only by you. This may or may not be with the help or influence of discarnate fragments. In keeping with the topic we will ask, if each of you were to choose a symbol, a means for messages to be relayed from Essence, what resonates with you? [TCB] I was wondering about the average soul ages of the Oracles at Delphi? Also, how those ‘experiences’ might be brought to bear now upon the various *participants*, at the current soul ages? [Michael_Entity] Most of you have been within one level of your current Soul Age since the last manifestation of the Infinite Soul. For the thousand years approximately before the manifestation, those of you present here, moved only one or two soul levels. Many of you have been incarnating for nearly 6 million years. This gives you a larger scope of the process of living lives and transiting Soul Levels. Though some of you feel a sense of urgency or weariness at the game, Essence enjoys nearly it all. It strolls through your incarnations ecstatic, in most cases. As far as the experiences from past lives, the lifetime that will affect you or is relevant, affects you with or without conscious awareness. Many of the experiences “gained” in the lives at Delphi are complete experiences and have no bearing in your present. What the Essence gains, is not necessarily what a current Personality can utilize or make sense of. Though many of you completed lives in Greece during this great influential time, there are but a few who still remain linked to that time in terms of influences now. We are speaking in terms of your “list” and its members. Next question. [Arinna] When I am channeling my higher self (essence) how can I get my personality’s consciousness out of the way as much as possible? Also, when I feel that shift in energy within myself – is that my essence causing that? [Michael_Entity] In answer to your first question: you will never be able to “get your personality's consciousness out of the way”. Your consciousness IS your Essence connection. The key is in learning to trust your Personality and work with its thoughts, feelings, and motion. When settling in to “channel” your Essence, you are merely deciding to gather a larger perception. When connected to Essence consciously, it is not necessarily a revelation or a significant shift or breakthrough. The state is so natural some dismiss what has occurred. There will be a shift in energy, and this will be as significant as you require as a mark for your connection. This is your body/Personality's design, not Essence's. The “shift” you speak of is a harmonious, clear mark for you and it works. Many choose this method. There is as much Essence involved in a fist fight as there is in a charismatic guru, when consciousness and choice are aligned. When sitting next in your session to connect more consciously to Essence, simply want to, and it will be. Within that moment, all any of you have to do to remain connected consciously, is to choose consciously. We will define “consciously” here as “with awareness”, but there are other ways to define. When every decision you make as Personality is done with consciousness, Essence is present. When you find yourself happy, Essence is present. Whether you are indulging in eating a bucket of ice cream, doing horrific acts of violence, or singly sweetly with a friend… if chosen consciously and with intent, Essence is present. The mark for rejection of Essence, or blocking of Essence can be seen in any sense of contraction in your life, or area of your life. We realize we have moved into a tangent, but we feel it is relevant. Essence can be present, for instance, in your art or creativity alone, but is rejected or blocked in a relationship to a spouse. Essence “backs off” from areas of your life where the Personality has chosen to do things its own way. We will ask here, before continuing with questions, if we have answered Arinna's question to a degree acceptable. [Lights_Edge] What are some examples of common old soul beliefs and emotions that limit our conscious connection to essence? [TCB] Please excuse me…but just to clarify something, when you said two ‘soul levels’, did you mean “soul ages?” Or soul levels? (within the 7 Stages?) [Michael_Entity] We will answer Terrence first, but are aware of Terri's question. We will answer that following. Common Old Soul beliefs are: that you all already “know it all”, especially relative to the “poor little young souls”. That you deserve a financially abundant life free from effort; that your peers (other Older Souls) are weird (even as you appear weird to them); that you are from another planet. (We speak of this last one relative to its preoccupation.) Others are, that you are alone; that you do not fit in; that you must suffer; that if you can just ride out this life, it will all be over; that you are “tired”; that you are done. These are just a few. We realize each of you will have your versions of these and others, as well. When these beliefs (or ones you identify) can become acknowledged, we suggest the fastest way to reconnect to Essence would be through laughter, pleasure, or through tears. These three biological functions are directly related to contact with Essence, and in most instances, a “pure connection”. We mean “pure” in the sense that it is quite difficult to be self-judging in the moment of actual true tears, true laughter or true pleasure. As we have said in many instances with your little group, tears are the biological reaction to Truth. We now add that Laughter is the biological reaction to Oneness (Energy/Beauty), and Pleasure is the biological reaction to Love. We will answer Terri's question now. We referred to the 7 stages when we said each of you has transited approximately one or two soul levels from the one you are in presently. [MaryBV] Getting in touch with essence seems like such a BIG question. I am wondering if as younger souls we incur karma and work on monads and the like to throw up roadblocks for us to pull down as we get older. In other words, as we move away the debris of our younger days, are we in fact starting the lesson of the older levels which is to re-remember our essence? And in answer to the question about resonance I believe I resonate with my essence through music. [Michael_Entity] You are correct in many ways, Mary. “Re-remembering” is a valid term in this instance. The Old Soul phase can be said to be the age of comprehending all consequences. Studying your Role will give you more and more insights into your “essence”. No other aspect in your dynamics can clarify that remembering as much as your Role. Many of you have become very adaptable over the eons. This means you are less inclined to manifest your Essences as you see fit. Instead, you rely on this single Personality that “you” are to comprehend all that has come to pass as a Soul. The key is in freeing the personality from this distraction. This is why we feel past lives, though valid, more often lay a burden on many of you in ways that are difficult to comprehend or validate. There are some functions that are of Essence, and some that are of Personality's. Differentiating these functions can lend more freedom to both. Personality wants to live. It is alive NOW in the most important sense it will ever know. By treating yourselves (Personality) as something to be overcome, set aside, tamed, or controlled, you are missing the point. You are Essence's eyes, hands, feet, heart… everything you delight in, so does Essence. For each Essence there are simple ways to take delight in a life. In that delight, there are ways to build more conscious connections. Building on delight brings the laughter and tears and pleasure. As we have said before, Happiness is a navigational tool for the body while on the physical plane. We will point out that happiness does not mean you are merely smiling and content. Even in the worst of situations, they can technically be contextually happy since there are aspects of you that “understand”. To help in re-remembering your Essence, we think these few keywords may be of some assistance in navigating toward delight: For the Expressive Roles, Sages and Artisans take delight in playing, goofing off. For the Inspirational Roles, Priests and Servers take delight in helping, guiding, caring for, discussing. For the Action Roles, Kings and Warriors take delight in challenges, commitment, and sexuality. For the Assimilative Role, the Scholar delights in knowing, understanding, and learning. They can also refer to Casting. Although these delights are not exclusive nor complete, they are helpful in reminding you of what Essence delights in, and this can be compared to when you, as Personality, may be filtering or dismissing that delight. [nemo999] Regarding symbols, does essence have a natural language instead of words, I am thinking of thoughts, feelings, pictures instead of English or Chinese for example? [Michael_Entity] The Language of Essence is transparent, so to speak. It is relative to the listener. Essence cannot communicate any other way. On the Astral, it is understood that you will never “see” the true Essence you are communicating to, unless you resonate. Otherwise, every Essence sees its version of other Essences that makes the most sense of the energy that is “other”. Therefore, while physical, Essence will appear, communicate, behave, in whatever fashion the personality imposes or chooses. This is why we suggest being conscious of what you feel is symbolic of Essence. This will heighten your conscious connection. The idea of Power Animals is a valid means to achieve this. Choosing a number that then shows up occasionally on clocks, receipts, etc. This is a valid reminder and connection to Essence. There are a multitude of ways and you may create many paths for these. And then there will finally be the symbolic realization that you can simply BE your Essence, meaning, after you have begun building a foundation of trust and validity as to what your Essence is, you may then simply ACT as Essence. [TCB] Clarification Question: You said that the lives in Delphi are ‘complete experiences’. I understand this, yes. But I would like clarification on why you said that they ‘have no bearing’ on this life, in terms of essence. It seems to me that all completed essence experiences would be available to be ‘drawn from’ in the current life, if one chooses to make such ‘contact’ with that ‘past experience’ and learning gained. Just wanted to get some clarification. [Michael_Entity] We never said that the experience had no bearing on Essence, only on the present lifetime, referring to the Personality. You are correct that all gained experiences as Essence are accessible to any lifetime. If one were to choose to connect to that lifetime, it is the fragment's choice. In lifetimes where an experience is completed, it is rare that Personality can gain from drawing on it in the present, if the lifetime currently has no way to utilize the experiences. If the lifetime currently has a practical way to utilize a past life, it will be connected to it regardless anyway. We were answering your question in the form you asked it originally. And as far as the members of your group in the list go, only a few have incomplete experiences from those lives in Delphi. This means for most, there is little to be “brought to bear” from that time. We are gathering that you have some possible inclinations as to what the experiences were focused on in those lives. It may surprise you that they were far less spiritual than you might have guessed. Most from the list were not so metaphysically inclined, but were taking lives of Flow and Re-evaluation during a time when things were relatively secure. Creativity, sexual indulgence, spiritual perusal, were all able to be lavished into the heart's content of THAT Personality. Your Personality presently might find the means of the previous Personality's exploration to be rather repugnant. [TCB] Can't remembering such past lives serve to balance certain aspects of the current life experience, or ‘personality’, if so chosen? [Michael_Entity] This does not mean they cannot access or draw from those lives, if they choose. We only say that the context is entirely different in this time frame. We feel exploring past lives that have no relevance can be most useful if seen in terms of a soul's scrapbook. Otherwise, it is nearly the same as saying that what your Mother learned, so have you by default, or what your Sister learned, you can use as a skill. “YOU” are a completely different design than another life and it is distressing to the present you when compared or when seeking to draw skills that are “not yours”. This can be likened to a parent telling a child that they could be “more like your brother”. Understanding lives that are relevant, ones that will impact you with or without conscious exploration, this is where the breakthroughs are, where the talents and insights and motivations can be gained, and this happens without need for consciousness. But, as always, you may choose your explorations any way you feel inclined. We will conclude then. There will always be more to gain from exchanging on all of these topics. Goodnight.

    The 7 Facets of Scholar

    [Excerpted from NWM - Jan 15, 2015 - Seven Facets of Role] MEntity: Today, we are asked to discuss what might best be described as the "facets" of a Role. These would be the same, regardless of Soul Age, and do not represent a progression into the conscious use of the Role. The evolution of the use of a Role is relative to Soul Ages and Levels, so for instance, and Old Sage is very different from a Young Sage. But, today, we will discuss WHAT KIND of Sage, not necessarily how evolved the Sage. We see there is speculation as to correlation with Casting as a means for defining these variations on a Role, and that is in part true, but only in part. These Facets "rotate" for each Role, and while Casting tends to describe a default, a Role can have locked into any one of the Facets. ... 7 FACETS OF SCHOLAR For simplistic purposes, we WILL use the correlation of Casting to Role to help you to map the Facets, but what we will offer today are phrases or terms that might better capture the "sub-archetype" that is that Facet of that Archetype. We remind you that your Casting may not indicate which Facet of the Role you have locked into. THE SERVER-SCHOLAR might best be described as the QUIET CONDUCTOR. This is the Scholar with the high levels of attentiveness and efficiency that knows best how to move people, energy, and events like parts of an orchestra. Even when not in any obvious connection, this Conductor is keenly aware of how even the compartmental elements of the life are working together on some level. When this Scholar is in the Positive Poles, the Conducting is always for the best interest of what has been deemed this symbolic orchestra of the life. The efficiency and attention serve to bring out the best "sounds" of all involved so that all benefit. When this Scholar is in the Negative Poles, the Conducting is not in the best interest of the orchestra, so to speak, but in the best interest of just keeping things quiet, contained, and manageable. THE ARTISAN-SCHOLAR might be described as the FAST THINKER. This is the Scholar who is quick on his feet, thorough in his thought, and quite vast in his range of thought. He is able to extrapolate quite quickly from data already known, and present valid ideas and concepts. To "save time" in our delivery today, we will only share the Negative Poles, since the basic description has its Positive Poles implied. When this Scholar is in the Negative Pole, the Fast Thinker drops into being a Fast Liar. THE WARRIOR-SCHOLAR might be described as THE OPPOSITION. This is the Scholar who actively challenges you, ideas, and concepts, and is conservative and deliberate, headstrong. This Scholar will very easily flip to another point of view, as long as it is challenging. In the Negative Pole, this Scholar just becomes pushy, badgering, and even bullying in perspectives. THE SCHOLAR-SCHOLAR might best be described as THE DISCIPLINED - this is the Scholar who is impelled and driven and consumed by whatever has drawn his attention and interests. He loses himself in this, but for the sake of complete sensory experience. In the Negative Pole, this Scholar reduces himself to addictions, compulsions, obsession, and does not lose himself IN an experience, but loses himself TO an experience. In other words, loses himself, altogether. This Scholar will try to compensate through the use of control and even micro-managing. THE SAGE-SCHOLAR - This Scholar might best be described as THE JUDGE. This is the Scholar with a keen sense of justice, "right," "wrong," and is very precise in his calculations, whether in broader, intangible ways such as assessing character, or in direct and tangible ways such as assessing actions. When in the Negative Pole, this Scholar can fall into incite, provocation, barbed and abrasive assessments. THE PRIEST-SCHOLAR might best be described as THE PHILOSOPHER - This Scholar is slower in his thinking, pondering, and tends away from conclusions and closed systems of thinking. Though he would be methodical, intellectual, and quite fond of systems, it would only be for the sake of grasping the nature of a thing, a person, or existence. When in the Negative Pole, this Scholar might fall into escapist daydreaming, logical loops, and confusion. THE KING-SCHOLAR might best be described as THE HUMANITARIAN - This is the Scholar who is most concerned with principles, ethics, quality of life gained from experiences, and not so much about curiosity, risk, and adventures. The emphasis is on how the knowledge can help sustain quality of life. When in the Negative Pole, this Scholar falls into apathy, dispassion, disillusionment. Though these are quite brief descriptions of these Facets of Scholar, we ask the Scholars here if there is any resonance to one of these for you. [There were responses from a few Scholars attending]

    C1E2 Scholars

    This was originally posted by a C1E2 member from a private Essence Report on 9/15/10. FROM MICHAEL: As with all of your Cadre Mates, your Essence chose its Role millions of years ago, using Earth as a local form of measuring Time that would make sense to you. The Role of Scholar was chosen alongside a relative “handful” of other Essences who chose the Role of Scholar within your Entity. The original intention was for your Cadence Group to act as part of the processing unit for Entity 2 of your Cadre. Entity 2 had an overall intention of infiltrating and participating in high-profile entertainment experiments or direct involvement with world events, even that that “world” happens to only be a family, town, community, country, etc. This lends Entity 2 a heavy emphasis on Expression Axis energy, and this permeates every Role and Position within the Entity. Scholars within any Entity or Cadre tend to act as record keepers and act as the responsible party for updating the Akashic Records involving events within and throughout the Entity and/or Cadre. Each individual fragment is in charge of doing this updating for itself, either during the life, or during the review of the life, but part of that updating is through delegation to trusted Scholars within the Entity or Cadre. Because of the magnitude of experiences gathered by Entity 2 fragments who are directly, often dramatically, involved with theatrical, high-profile, or intense positions within Physical Lives, and with the individual fragments eager to keep records as up-to-date as possible, the workload of this group of 49 Scholars within the entity, this “handful” of Scholars, is often distracted, exhausted, or burned out for reasons that never make sense to them. This is partially because that is the nature of Scholars, in general, to carry the “weight” of processing for not only themselves, but for those around them, and those within the Entity and Cadre.
  13. February 21, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Configurations THANKS TO ANNE AND MaryBV for Moderating, and to MaryBV for Editing! This transcript includes additional channeling for clarification. [M_Entity] We are here. One Moment. We understand the topic as being Configurations. The topic of Configurations is avoided by most of our students and channels for a couple of reasons in general: Understanding Configurations depends on your understanding of the very basics of our system; and as the complexities of each Configuration grows, the contexts for understanding each position changes a bit. This can be confusing to most since many want the differing systems to be more consistent. We will define “Configuration” as any number of Fragments beyond ONE who act together with a common goal. There are FORMAL Configurations and INFORMAL Configurations. FORMAL Configurations are based in Essence “plans” and can have a goal that does not get accomplished for many lifetimes. INFORMAL Configurations occur in any number of situations in which you are in any kind of group. These could easily be called WORKING CONFIGURATIONS and SOCIAL CONFIGURATIONS, respectively. Understanding a Working Configuration can shed light on your life as you grow through your 4th Internal Monad and begin your own personal Life Task. If you are part of a Working Configuration (which most are), you will then find the insight leading you closer to maintaining True Personality and connection to Essence. Understanding Social Configurations can shed light on your life as you grow as a Personality, at any physical age or soul age, and allow you to understand why certain dynamics occur in certain groupings. As we share with you the dynamics of each Configuration, remember that the information applies to BOTH Working and Social groups, unless otherwise indicated. The only difference is this: In Working Configurations, the Position you play within your group DOES NOT ALTER. In Social Configurations, your Position will alter as necessary. For those of you who will try to link the Configurations to what we call a Support Group, we suggest you not jump ahead before the completion of the information. Support Groups (a group of 12 fragments who enrich and empower your life) are of a different context to a small degree and we will clarify as time permits. First, we will share with you the correlations basic to understanding Configurations. This will be familiar to some of you. The information will come as follows: NUMBER – ROLE – Configuration Position 1 Server Love 2 Artisan Knowledge 3 Warrior Power 4 Scholar Support 5 Sage Revolutionary 6 Priest Integrator 7 King Leader 8 Server Pivot 9 Artisan Intuitive 10 Warrior Discipline 11 Sage Healer 12 Priest Enlightener 13 King Muse A Configuration beyond this begins to become ever more meaningless in terms of a given lifetime, though if any student were interested, the numbers do continue. There is a mathematical meaning behind this sequence. There is also meaning as to why, in the numbers beyond 7, though the Roles repeat there is no Scholar listed. This is because when the Configuration grows to the number 13, Position 4 moves from being considered SUPPORT, to SUPPORTED and is the pivotal factor among the 12 other Positions. We will elaborate on that as time permits, but for now we will begin with the more evident and useful Configurations you may find yourself as part of in daily life. TRIAD The smallest Configuration is a TRIAD. Though we listed the correlations above, in the case of a Triad, the terms above DO NOT APPLY. When 3 people are involved, there are the very basic Positions of POSITIVE – NEGATIVE – NEUTRAL. A group of 3 will ALWAYS be a catalyst for transformation and progression through some kind of Karma, internally or externally. 3, and by extension Karma, is the very basic Configuration that allows this Universe and an Essence to grow. In groups of 3, there will usually be “issues” raised and if the Configuration is serious and committed, each new challenge will take each Fragment forward. We believe the inherent tension found in a group of 3 is where the phrase, “3 is a crowd” comes from. Based on limited time, we will quickly cover each Configuration, and then take your questions. We note here that there are NO WORKING CONFIGURATIONS of 3. QUADRATE The next Configuration is a Quadrate. In a Quadrate, the Common Goal is usually directly linked to each Fragment’s own Life Task. Beyond the Quadrate, into higher numbered Configurations, the Life Task is not necessarily linked to the group goal. We say this in reference to Working Configuration ONLY; in a Social Configuration, no personal Life Tasks are necessarily relevant. As we share with you the differing Configurations, we note that EVEN-numbered Configurations up to 10 MUST have all Positions being filled by Physically-incarnate Fragments. ODD-numbered Configurations can tend to have the final, odd-numbered Position filled by non-physical Fragments acting as guides, or the Position may be filled with a Concept/Ideal representing that Position. Even the Configuration of 3 may have only two Physical participants, while the “issue” is the “third position.” In most cases, however, ALL Fragments tend to be extant, except in the highly unstable group of 5. Beyond the Configuration of 10, no more “rules” apply except that the BASIC QUADRATE (4) is incarnated. In a group of 4 in either Social or Working Configurations, each will fall into one of the four basic positions inherent to that Configuration: LOVE, KNOWLEDGE, POWER, and SUPPORT. Something unique to the Positions defined in a Quadrate is that EVERY INDIVIDUAL EXTANT falls into one of these basic 4 Social Positions as a means to interact in groups with no specific goal, such as a party, or night out, or reunion, etc. No matter the size of the group, most Social groups with no goal will reduce themselves to smaller interacting groups of 4, and each Fragment interacting will take on one of these 4 Positions, however insignificantly or meaningfully. A Quadrate with a goal may have been behind organizing the event, but subsequent interaction within the event will simply be of basic socializing. We would call this additional level of Configuration with no goal, a “CASUAL Configuration”. LOVE Position: This Position is the one who brings the initiation of ideas to the group. They are usually very inspiring and naturally seem to be able to get everyone “psyched up” about something to do. They do not, however, have the ability to actually make the ideas happen. In fact, it is not their “job” at all. In a group of 4, the person who inspires and generates the ideas might be best left to simply doing that. In a Social situation, this person is usually the one who initiates the gathering or comes up with the suggestions for what to do, once gathered. In a basic social situation, this is usually the most humorous, entertaining person in the group; the “social butterfly” who moves from group to group, one conversation to the next, bringing a light air to any gathering. KNOWLEDGE is the person who refines the ideas generated by LOVE. In a basic social situation, a Knowledge person will usually root themselves into a conversation, debate, or discussion with one or two people and remain there for a great deal of the event. They can sometimes become irritated by the whimsical, flittering of Love throughout the groups if this distracts from the more “serious discussions” Knowledge is having. POWER is the one who is in the position to actually make the ideas of Love, refined by Knowledge, happen. In a basic social situation, this person can express in any number of ways, but they are easily the Fragment who ultimately controls the mood and focus of the group/s. They can end the fun as easily as they can sustain it. They can shift the direction as easily as they maintain it. SUPPORT is the mediator and cohesiveness that keeps the group stable. In a basic social situation, this person will gravitate toward any position of the most use. In most cases, they will at least pair themselves with one other person. The Support person is the one who usually gets “stuck” tolerating, or listening to, any of the other Positions as they may express themselves inappropriately or tediously; such as a Knowledge wielding lengthy lectures on topics few are interested in; or the Love Position as they turn to the use obnoxiousness as a means to generate interaction; or Power as they may sit and brood for not getting what they want. Support will either find himself or herself in that situation or in the broader position of making sure everyone is having a good time and happy and taken care of. A Quadrate is the most popular and most stable of all Configurations. It is usually very successful in all endeavors, either as Social or Working Configurations. The Casual Configuration is the root of all basic, stable interactions among groups of Sentience. Incidentally, many successful sitcoms or dramas are rooted primarily in a Quadrate interacting together. Using “I Love Lucy” as the example, LUCY is the LOVE Position, Ricky is the POWER Position, Fred is the SUPPORT Position, and Ethel is the KNOWLEDGE Position. These Positions rotate occasionally, but we are speaking of the characters’ interactions as a theme. In general, Love and Power tend to pair up, while Support and Knowledge do so, as experiences are generated and goals undertaken. Love and Knowledge do not necessarily “pair up”, but they eventually do tend to lead the group, even if indirectly. Power and Support tend to remain “quieter”, though they are the Fragments who usually find each experience’s conclusion and resolution. In the example of “Lucy”, though “Ethel” and “Lucy” are always leading the group into new adventures, “Ricky” and “Fred” resolve them. When participants in a Quadrate are not available, Love/Power take on either or both Positions, while Knowledge/Support does the same. Though Knowledge could take on Power, or vice versa, and Love/Support can also be exchanged, it is not as comfortable. PENTAGON When a FIFTH Position is added to a Quadrate, it then becomes a Pentangle, or Pentagon. The new Position is called a REVOLUTIONARY. In groups of 5, there will always be one person who challenges the very stability of the focus. In Working Configurations, a Pentagon is either a formidable force, or a direct disaster. In Social situations of 5, there will always be the fifth person, the Revolutionary, who will complain, fall asleep, try to redirect the group, or finally they will simply leave the group. In a successful Working Configuration of 5, the 5th Position is usually filled with a CONCEPT instead of a Person. The Beatles are an example of both a Concept as Revolution, and a Person. The Configuration when it held a 5th person collapsed in stability, but when the Position turned to a Concept, the group excelled in tremendously successful ways. While a Quadrate has a goal of manifesting or accomplishing something, a Pentagon, if seriously undertaken, is out for transforming things on great levels. SEXTET The next Configuration is a SEXTET, adding the Position of the Integrator. The Integrator becomes the strength and higher inspiration for longer-term sustenance of that Configuration. Usually, because of the inherent instability of a Pentagon, at some point, it will either shift to a Quadrate, or bring in an Integrator. A Sextet, then, is the next most popular and successful Working Configuration. The highly successful series called “FRIENDS” is a good example. This example of a Working Configuration of the characters is as follows: LOVE: Rachel KNOWLEDGE: Ross POWER: Monica SUPPORT: Chandler Revolutionary: Joey Integrator: Phoebe SEPTET The final Configuration we will comment on tonight will be the SEPTET, adding the Position of LEADER. A Septet’s Goal is usually one that is based in SEARCH and DISCOVERY. Most teams of 7 are based in a common goal of seeking, exploring, discovering. Many Septets are involved in medicine, science, and metaphysics, as you may have assumed. The highly successful series of Star Trek is based primarily in Septets. The LEADER watches over all of the participant’s contributions and makes the most difficult and larger-themed decisions as to any new directions or steps. They provide the clearer template for where the growth and direction of the group will go. This topic is a large topic, we realize, and we do note the limited time available to you. Using the list we shared at the beginning of the chat, you can extrapolate from it and determine varying meanings of Positions people may take in groups under 13. In terms of Working Configurations, the dynamics may or may not be as obvious. We will speak on the 6 other Configurations of meaning in another session. We will take your questions now, if there are any. Q & A [Cathy] Regarding Triads, my husband Brian and I have a friend living with us for an extended period of time while she is getting her business started. Can you tell me how this fits as a catalyst for transformation and progression through what kind of karma, internally or externally? [M_Entity] The Triad Positions of Positive, Negative, and Neutral will shift among the three of you. In any given challenge, the Positive Position will be the catalyst, such as “invading privacy”. The Negative Position would be the person whose privacy was felt to be invaded. The Neutral Position is the person who either does not care, or will step in to help resolve the tension. In fact, the resolution of an issue with a Triad will be in that EACH Person experiences EACH Position before progress is made. For example, the Positive who invaded privacy may feel bad, shifting to a constricted Negative Position. The original Negative Position whose privacy was invaded may reach out, trying to “get over it,” assuming the friendship is more important, moving to the Positive. The Neutral may see both sides, experiencing Positive and Negative, until resolution. As you watch the dynamics among the three of you, being aware of these shifting Positions, even in moments of fun, should prove enlightening. [LisaC] what do the roles listed have to do with the position they were paired with? Like why was server listed as love position? [M_Entity] LOVE is that which initiates and is part of EVERYTHING. Love, in terms of the Configurations and the resonance to the Server, is in the fact that the Server Essence is primary to this Universe. The Server Essence inspires on a most basic and attainable level. Resonance DOES NOT, however, mean that only certain Roles will gravitate to the Positions. We merely showed the correlations so as to enhance your understanding of the Positions. LOVE knows what everyone needs, just as a Server does. LOVE can be inspiring and enthusiastic, or obnoxious and manipulative, as a Server can be. We realize some of the correlations may appear counter-intuitive, but we remind you that correlations must be considered in context. For instance, we do not suggest making this sequence parallel to the Chakra System. Though it may very well “work,” it is not a shared context. We believe the most confusing correlations, besides the Server/Love, may be the Scholar/Support, and Artisan/Knowledge. We find the resonance particular to the Configurations because Artisans are ironically highly structured Essences and can refine a great amount of energy and information quite swiftly. A Scholar does not do so. A Scholar is far more interested in indulging in the information, for the sake of the information, than to refine it. As far as the Scholar/Support, we find the resonance there to be in that the energy of the Scholar does not get “invested” in any one angle, and can therefore remain objective, supportive, and cohesive to a group. This does not mean the Support Position does not contribute knowledge, but that it is not invested in any outcome. [cec] How do cadres and entities play out in the configurations? [M_Entity] GROUPS of Cadres (12) are of a different context. GROUPS of Entities (a Cadre) are all Septets. In other words, there is a 1 – LOVE/Server Entity; a 2 – KNOWLEDGE/Artisan Entity, etc. [MaryBV] In a working configuration you mentioned the work involved the life task. Do the members have the same life tasks or are they similar or complementary to each other? [M_Entity] In a Quadrate, the individual Life Tasks would all complement each other in some way. They may not appear so, but in terms of the larger goal of the Configuration, it is contributing to the same direction. This only applies to a Working Quadrate. In all other Configurations, the Life Task may or may not contribute so directly or complementarily. [nemo-sam] do configurations relate to community jobs? [M_Entity] Yes. “Community Jobs,” if you are referring to the delineation of specific positions of a fragment within an Entity, relate to the higher- numbered Configurations having to do with far larger themes than any individual life may be able to make sense of. We will conclude here. Good Night.
  14. [Excerpt from TT: 2000-03-02] [See Conscious Connection to Essence, Parts 1-3, in their entirety] [Michael_Entity] In our sharing with you our various perspectives of what is and isn’t being conscious of Essence, we believe a practical examination of each Essence Role would be beneficial. In our examination we will share what we perceive are the Maya (or Great Lesson) of that particular role and a more ‘organic’ approach to determining what might be considered rejection of Essence or what might be considered acceptance of Essence. We will note here that the positive and negative poles of the Essence ARE NOT indications of being conscious or accepting of Essence. A fragment in the Negative Poles is just as potentially “in Essence” as a fragment in the positive poles, at least in terms of experiencing its life. What we have sought to exchange with you is what it means to reject Essence or accept Essence as part of your primary being. Those who reject Essence are in deep isolation and a myriad of other traumatic or deteriorating experiences, regardless of how together their life appears or how wonderful their work and relationships and successes are. Those who are accepting and conscious of Essence usually have the enthusiasm to ‘make the best of everything’, even in the midst of what ‘should’ be devastating. Poverty, drama, accidents, horror are NOT signs of disconnection from Essence, they are merely experiences. A positive pole role can still be at its apparent ‘best’ yet still be disconnected from Essence. A negative pole role can be as difficult and trying as expected, and be conscious. The keys are in the act of Decisions and CHOICES. In the moments of your darkest despair, if you can “look up” and recognize that this space is simply where you are at the moment, even if you seek no resolution beyond that realization, half of your battle is completed. When you say “yes, this is where I am right now, I know I could do something but I do not feel like it right now”, you have granted yourself an open door to Essence. Acknowledging your state of mind, your resistance, your struggles, etc. are in that very moment your decision and choice to allow or change, you become immediately centered and present, regardless of your choice in either direction. This will immediately and in that moment connect you consciously to Essence. This does not mean your mood or situation will magically remove itself from your life, but you have opened your world and option for greater probabilities by that single choice, a millionfold. Besides your initial acknowledgment that you may have dropped your connection to Essence, we will say that the most powerful and profound choice you can make next is to ASK FOR HELP. The body is not designed to sustain animation and life without connection to Essence for any extended period of time once sentience has moved in. We want to note at this point that there is no REAL disconnection from Essence; we merely use these terms for convenience, even the term ‘rejection’ is inaccurate in light of the truth, but these terms capture the experience and we will continue to use them with this understanding. We will begin now with each Essence, but first, we will pause for a few questions, if there are any, about what we have shared thus far. Therefore, each Essence will have its “Great Lesson” and this ‘lesson’ will always recur each lifetime in some form. There will be no lifetime that does not struggle with this ‘lesson’, however briefly. Regardless of the dynamics of personality and its chosen emphasis of challenge, the Essence IN ITSELF has its challenges, though it is seen from a very different perspective and eagerly played with. This results from Essence “forgetting” the inherent challenges of the physical plane while being Astral. The body has to regain consciousness each lifetime regardless of soul age and seeks to grow back into the soul age last reached in the previous life. We will address the SCHOLAR now. The Scholar that is connected to Essence and conscious has learned its Great Lesson, which revolves around the reality of shared love. This Scholar has realized with a great amount of profundity that they will not love another until they have sought to love themselves. As we have said, there are many of these Role symptoms you all may find applicable, but for each Role, you will see they are a deeper lesson when specifically considered. All other Roles have an “easier” time at loving and being loved than the Scholar does. The Scholar who is connected to Essence has realized they are whole and complete, that they like themselves and have decided to trust and open their hearts to their life. They recognize that ALL aspects of life are capable of being loved, even themselves and all the hard times passed through. When the Scholar is disconnected or rejecting of Essence, they do their best to ignore their lives, to resist the examination that not everything is fine. This Scholar refuses to examine their vulnerabilities and have not dealt with their shadow feelings, resulting in acts of dominance or power struggles. They have never experienced intimacy of any depth due to these things. They become adept at arguing their points, ignoring the pains of their past, destroying or deteriorating any relationship or person whom touches too closely too personal areas of pain and sensation. They are Stubbornness manifest. They, more than any other Role, truly fear what is called love. The disconnected Scholar can still bring in a definite resource of love into their lives, but this is usually sought only out of need for refuge, a place to securely hold up the walls around their own hearts. The Scholar disconnected from Essence can be one of the most painful and emotionally tormenting of all exchanges for someone trying to love them. Some suggestions for bringing more of Essence in might be to talk to children about their perspective on life, actually play with children or play on a child’s playground. Seeking laughter of any kind brings Essence immediately back in for a Scholar. Seeking the experience of the aroma and visuals of botanical gardens or observing the ocean can help, or having flowers within visual and olfactory range.
